Mental health search reopened Committee takes step to fill 5th recent vacancy on board By KEVIN P. CRAVER kcraver@shawmedia.com The McHenry County Mental Health Board is extending its search for a new executive director after one of the two finalists for the job dropped out. And when new finalists are chosen, a familiar face known

for speaking his mind might be one of the Mental Health Board members who makes the final choice. The County Board’s Public Health and Human Services Committee voted Wednesday morning, 4-3, to recommend filling a vacant Mental Health Board seat with former McHen-

ry County College Trustee Scott Summers. The recommendation came the morning after a Tuesday evening Mental Health Board meeting in which it was announced that one of the two finalists for the open top job took another offer. Reopening the search with

the same firm hired last year to find a replacement will be less expensive, committee member Paula Yensen, D-Lake in the Hills, said Wednesday morning. Yensen holds the County Board’s voting seat on the nine-member Mental Health Board.

What it means The County Board Public Health and Human Services Committee on Wednesday morning voted, 4-3, to recommend appointing former McHenry County College Trustee Scott Summers to fill a vacant Mental Health Board seat. Voting “yes” to appoint Summers were Chairwoman Donna Kurtz, R-Crystal Lake, and members John Hammerand, R-Wonder Lake; Sandra Fay Salgado, R-McHenry; and Michael Walkup, R-Crystal Lake. Members Paula Yensen, D-Lake in the Hills; Mary McCann, R-Woodstock; and Anna May Miller, R-Cary, voted “no.”

TELEMARKETING TROUBLES

Curbing unwanted sales pitches

The ASSOCIATED PRESS BOSTON – The surviving suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings acknowledged to the FBI his role in the attacks but did so before he was advised of his constitutional rights to keep quiet and seek a lawyer, officials said Wednesday. It is unclear whether those statements would be admissible in a criminal trial and, if not, whether prosecutors even need them to win a conviction. Officials said physical evidence, including a 9 mm Dzhokhar handgun and Tsarnaev pieces of a remote-control device commonly used in toys, was recovered from the scene. The suspect, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, told authorities that his older brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, only recently recruited him to be part of the attack, two U.S. officials said. The CIA, however, named Tamerlan to a terrorist database 18 months ago, officials said Wednesday, an acknowledgment that will undoubtedly prompt congressional inquiry about whether investigators took warnings from Russian intelligence seriously enough.

GENERAL INFORMATION: 815-459-4040

Seminar great place for new officials to start Either next week or the following week, dozens of area residents will go from regular citizens to elected officials, and here’s hoping the change in status comes with positive changes for those individuals and their respective communities. Certainly at the local level, and often at higher levels of government, representing one’s community whether on a school board, city council or fire protection district is a noble endeavor, albeit a thankless one. If you’re proud of where you live, chances are that’s because there is a small group of people in your town who’ve been taking care of the little details, operating mainly under the radar and making sure needs are being addressed for little or no compensation for themselves. Most elected officials know what they’re getting into, but there are sure to be surprises along the way. Being determined in how one plans to

8LOTTERY

VIEWS Kevin Lyons approach public service is a great way to start. As they have in the past, McHenry County State’s Attorney Louis Bianchi and Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan’s offices are providing an opportunity at 7 p.m. May 2 at McHenry County College to learn about ethics and transparency issues new and old that public officials certainly will face on their leadership journey. Since these are the same offices that would go after the transgressions that run afoul of the Illinois Freedom of Information Act, the Open Meetings Act and the Illinois Public Officials Prohibited Activities Act, there will be plenty of preventive medicine distributed in the form of

information. Very few people go into public office at the local level for personal gain or to conduct public business in secret. What they want to do is make sure their schools and municipalities are properly run, and they hope that they have some particular talents that will be useful to their constituents. But what sometimes happens is that an “us against them” mindset develops somewhere into a political term. Often the “us” is other elected officials and employees of the government agency, while “them” is sometimes the public and/or the local media. It doesn’t have to be that way and it shouldn’t be, but conflict creates negative emotions. There will be conflict. Sometimes people will be irrational or even hostile. It’s grown-up life. Deny some guy a fence permit, and you’ve just become Public Enemy No. 1. Suspend some kid from school be-

cause he deserves it, and his mom will call the newspaper because he didn’t deserve it. As long as a public official remembers that he represents the angry fence guy and the beleaguered mother of the juvenile delinquent as much as anyone else, things should go OK. This is public service. Being available for rants as well as praise. Making sure your agency is transparent with its actions and records despite resistance from within. Staying out of even potential conflicts of interests. These are all big parts of doing the job well. The transparency and ethics seminar is open to all newly elected officials, incumbents and the public.

Gay rights an issue in immigration reform The ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON – Frustrated at being left out of an immigration overhaul, gay rights groups are pushing to adjust a bipartisan Senate bill to include gay couples. But Democrats are treading carefully, wary of adding another divisive issue that could lose Republican support and jeopardize the entire bill. Both parties want the bill to succeed. Merely getting to agreement on the basic framework for the immigration overhaul, which would create a long and costly path to citizenship for the estimated 11 million people in the U.S.

illegally, was no small feat for senators. And getting it through a divided Congress is still far from a done deal. Even so, gay rights groups, their lobbyists and grassroots supporters are insisting the deal shouldn’t exclude bi-national, same-sex couples – about 28,500 of them, according to a 2011 study from the Williams Institute at UCLA Law. They’re ramping up a campaign to change the bill to allow gay Americans to sponsor their partners for green cards, as straight Americans can. Supporters trekked to the Capitol to make their case at senators’ offices Wednesday. “Opponents will be pro-

posing amendments that, if passed, could collapse this very fragile coalition that we’ve been able to achieve,” Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., said last week at the unveiling of the bill. He said the eight senators from both parties who crafted the legislation are committed to opposing changes that could kill it. For Democrats, it’s a precarious position to be in. Democratic senators overwhelmingly support gay marriage – all but three are now on the record voicing their support – and two dozen of them this year backed a separate bill called the Uniting American Families Act to let gays

sponsor their partners independent of a comprehensive immigration overhaul. But the party’s senators are still bruised from an agonizing defeat on gun control this month. And few seem eager to inject divisive issues that might sink their best prospects for a major legislative victory this year and a potential keystone of President Barack Obama’s legacy. “Any amendment which might sink the immigration bill, I would worry about,” Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich., said, adding that he had yet to decide whether an amendment for gays and lesbians would meet that yardstick.

A story and headline on page C3 of Wednesday’s edition should have said that Johnsburg’s Olivia Jansen scored two goals to lead the Skyhawks. Jansen’s second goal was incorrectly credited to a different player. ••• Accuracy is important to the Northwest Herald, and we want to correct mistakes promptly.

Just ask 4-year-old pup Huckleberry, who’s been crowned this year’s “Beautiful Bulldog.” Huckleberry competed for the title in 2010, only to walk away empty-pawed. That changed Monday, when he strutted down a blue runway at Drake University in Des Moines dressed in a beige suit as the main character from the movie “Forrest Gump.” He beat 46 other dogs to don the crown and cape and seemed unfazed by the attention as he later feasted on a dog-friendly cake. Huckleberry’s owners said their pooch likes to spend time playing with a miniature basketball.

5 shot dead in Cautious relief as river levels fall downstate Ill. The ASSOCIATED PRESS

State police kill suspect in attack By REGINA GARCIA CANO The Associated Press MANCHESTER – The nephew of a small-town Illinois mayor shot and killed five people, including two boys, before leading police on a chase that ended in an exchange of gunfire that left him dead, authorities said Wednesday. Illinois State Police said they believe Rick O. Smith, 43, entered a Manchester home through the back door and shot the victims at close range with a shotgun, leaving two women, one man and the boys dead. Two people were found in a bedroom, two in a second bedroom and the man in the hallway. A sixth victim, a 6-year-old girl, was injured and taken to a Springfield hospital. “The offender took the 6-year-old out of the residence and put her in the hands of a neighbor,” State Police Lt. Col. Todd Kilby said. Officials have not revealed a motive. Police said the victims are related. Authorities

believe Smith and the victims were acquainted, but they didn’t provide details of the relationships. A bystander called police and told them that Smith fled the home in a white sedan. A car chase ensued, leading authorities to the nearby town of Winchester, where Smith and officers exchanged gunfire. Officers shot Smith, and he later died at a hospital. Police said they found a rifle, shotgun and large hunting knife in Smith’s car. Coroner officials said they plan autopsies on the victims Thursday morning in Bloomington and identities would be released at that time. Scott County State’s Attorney Michael Hill said Smith, of rural Morgan County, had convictions for reckless homicide, drugs and bad checks. Manchester Mayor Ronald Drake confirmed that Smith was his nephew, saying he hadn’t spoken to Smith in two years, but he believed his nephew was unemployed. Drake said the last time Smith contacted him was to borrow tools. Manchester is a village of about 300 residents about 50 miles west of Springfield.

Quarrel looms over ricin investigation The ASSOCIATED PRESS OXFORD, Miss. – The investigation into poisoned letters has shifted from an Elvis impersonator to his longtime foe, and authorities must now figure out if an online feud between the two men might have escalated into something more sinister. Paul Kevin Curtis, 45, was released from a Mississippi jail on Tuesday and charges against him were dropped, nearly a week after authorities charged him with sending ricin-laced letters to President Barack Obama, Republican U.S. Sen. Roger Wicker and a Lee County, Miss., judge, Sadie Holland. Before Curtis left jail, authorities had already descended on the home of 41-year-old Everett Dutschke in Tupelo, a northeast Mississippi town. On Wednesday, they searched the site of a Tupelo martial arts studio once operated by Dutschke, who hasn’t been arrested or charged. After being released from

jail Tuesday, Curtis, who performs as Elvis and other celebrities, described a yearslong feud between the two, but Dutschke insisted he had nothing to do with the letters. The two worked together at an insurance office years ago, Curtis said. He said Dutschke showed interest in publishing his book about what Curtis considers an underground market to sell body parts. But Dutschke decided not to publish the material, Curtis alleged, and later began stalking Curtis on the Internet. For his part, Dutschke said he didn’t even know Curtis that well. “Last time we had any contact with each other was at some point in 2010 when I threatened to sue him for fraud for posting a Mensa certificate that is a lie. He is not a Mensa member. That certificate is a lie,” Dutschke said Monday. Curtis acknowledges posting a fake Mensa certificate on Facebook, but says it was a trap set up for Dutschke because he believed Dutschke was stalking him online.

8BRIEFS Lawmaker in gun case gets community service

PHILADELPHIA – A Philadelphia abortion provider won’t testify or call witnesses at his capital murder trial, leaving jurors to weigh five weeks of prosecution evidence. Dr. Kermit Gosnell, 72, is charged with killing four babies allegedly born alive at a clinic that authorities have described as filthy. He is also charged in the 2009 overdose death of a 41-year-old woman. Gosnell’s defense rested Wednesday without calling a witness. The jury is expected to hear closing arguments Monday.

CHICAGO – An Illinois state senator accused of trying to board a Washington, D.C.bound flight with a gun pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor Wednesday and was sentenced to community service. A judge sentenced Donne Trotter to 60 hours of community service and a year of court supervision for the one count of reckless conduct. The Chicago Democrat also was ordered to pay $190 in fines and costs.

SPRINGFIELD – Inmates at a maximum-security prison in southern Illinois reported concern about “aggressive cellmates” shortly before a string of murders at the penitentiary, according to a report by an independent group. The John Howard Association said several older inmates at Menard Correctional Center were anxious about the “younger and aggressive” inmates they were housed with when the prison monitoring group visited Menard Correctional Center in December.

Sandbag walls are particularly vulnerable because of their porous nature, and concerns persisted along the Mississippi River in southeast Missouri, where smaller levees had been overtopped or breached. Elsewhere, there were no reports of other Midwestern population centers in peril, but high water bedeviled business and home owners who are assessing the damage across multiple states. • About a dozen northern Indiana homes were condemned and as many as 200 were damaged by flooding

Fargo and Moorhead, Minn., will likely range between 38 and 40 feet. The river overflows its banks at 18 feet, but most structures are protected to about 38 feet. In Peoria, citywide damage estimates are murky and could be sorted out in about a week once flood-affected businesses weigh in on their losses, Urich said. Up to 20 homes sustained damage, though much of downtown was spared: Water Street, which runs along the riverfront, was raised years ago to form more of a barrier between the river and the central business district.

Report: Inmates feared ‘aggressive cellmates’

PEORIA HEIGHTS – Slowly retreating floodwaters gave Midwesterners some hope Wednesday that the worst was over, but many worried that the earthen and days-old sandbag levees along the Illinois and Mississippi rivers could still fail. Fast-moving currents were testing makeshift protections around Dutchtown, Mo., where the Mississippi was expected to rise well above flood stage later this week and potentially send water into the scattered homes and businesses that comprise the tiny, unprotected river town. In downtown Peoria, tens of thousands of white and yellow sandbags stacked 3 feet high lined blocks of the scenic riverfront, holding back Illinois River waters that already reached a 70-year high and surrounded the visitors’ center and restaurants in the 114-year-old former train depot. Across the street, smaller sandbag walls blocked riverside pedestrian access to the headquarters of heavy equipment maker Caterpillar and the city’s arts and culture museum. Despite the receding water, city leaders were reluctant to issue an all-clear. “I’m very pleased so far, but we’re not out of the woods,” Peoria City Manager Patrick Urich said. “The water’s going to stay up for a while.” Higher water levels over extended periods of time put significant pressure on le-

Don’t legalize medical pot We remain opposed to the legalization of medical marijuana in the state of Illinois. While we acknowledge that marijuana use has some medical benefits, we feel strongly that any benefits are outweighed by other problems legalization could create. We were disappointed that three of McHenry County’s five state representatives voted last week in favor of a House bill that For the record would allow doctors to prescribe Legalizing marijuana for marijuana to medical purposes opens the patients with door for total acceptance. certain medical conditions. Reps. Barbara Wheeler, R-Crystal Lake; Michael Tryon, R-Crystal Lake; and Jack Franks, D-Marengo, sided with the majority to help pass the bill, 61-57. Sixty votes were needed to send the bill to the Senate, so had two of these three voted against it, the measure would have failed. Reps. David McSweeney, R-Barrington Hills, and Timothy Schmitz, R-Batavia, voted against it. Legalizing marijuana for medical purposes opens the door for total acceptance. Colorado and Washington already have legalized the drug for recreational use. Legalization increases the chances of the drug falling into the hands of children and others who don’t need it for medical reasons. It has been abused in other states and also sends a message to children that marijuana use is OK. Smoking marijuana regularly can cause serious health problems. It can damage brain cells and cells in bronchial passages, which can hurt a person’s immune system. There is not enough data to conclusively show what the long-term health effects of regular marijuana use are. Also, marijuana users who drive are impaired, increasing the chances of serious automobile accidents similar to drunken drivingrelated accidents. The bill now goes to the state Senate for debate. We urge the Senate to defeat this bill.

Militant Islam a world danger The world may never know for sure whether the Tsarnaev brothers acted alone in the Boston Marathon bombings. It seems likely, judging from what’s been disclosed so far in the investigation. Whether this was part of a broader conspiracy or not, there’s a common thread that runs through almost all of these terrorist attacks over the past two decades: militant Islam. That’s difficult for some in politics, including President Obama, and the media to acknowledge. It is true that there are many peaceful Muslims in this country. It’s also true that there have been and are so-called Christians who distort the message of the Bible and commit violent acts. But a major difference in Islam and Christianity is that Jesus Christ, the founder of Christianity, preached nonviolence, and the New Testament clearly points that out. The Koran, as interpreted by large groups, is not so clear on that. Rather, there are too many who interpret it as encouraging holy war. (McComb, Miss.) Enterprise-Journal

8IT’S YOUR WRITE Term limits needed To the Editor: Newspapers recently ran a small article that, in my opinion, symbolizes a good part of what is wrong with our political system today. The articles noted that U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., has an accumulated re-election war chest in excess of $3.2 million in preparation for a run for his fourth term. The article speculated that this enormous fund will discourage any challengers from even running against the incumbent. Durbin already has been in office for 18 years and is a part of the current crop of dysfunctional politicians who have gridlocked this country. Now he is going to “buy” a fourth term. We badly need term limits, and we need election spending control to level the playing field. Rich Pytka Crystal Lake

Not supported To the Editor: The statement made in Andleeb Ahmed’s letter to the editor that Jesus’ mission would have been a failure if He had, indeed, died from crucifixion is not supported by the quote Ahmed used from the Book of John. In that quote, as Ahmed explains, “Jesus clarifies his exact mission” with the words, “I lay down my life for the sheep.” Therefore, dying was Jesus’s mission, and He com-

pleted it as He attested from the cross, “It is finished.” Through this stubstitutionary, atoning death, the lost sheep of Israel and the “other sheep” (Gentiles) have the opportunity to be cleansed of sin, reconciled to God, and enter into eternal life. Beverly Meuch Wonder Lake

Some gun solutions To The Editor: Regarding Kathleen Parker’s column of April 12, I would have to say that, in general, she’s correct. Adam Lanza didn’t have to go through a background check. His mother did, and she was murdered by him before he went to Sandy Hook to kill 26 more people. I do wonder, considering she wasn’t oblivious to her son’s mental health issues, why she didn’t have those firearms locked away in her home? Was there a gun safe or trigger locks on those weapons? Just about every gun owner I know has at least a trigger lock installed when they store their firearms, if not a gun safe for extra security. It’s obvious that gun owners have a huge responsibility in that ownership. It’s also obvious that there’s more than only background checks and limiting magazine or clip capacity. Close the loopholes in Internet and gun-show sales. Enforce the law against straw buyers and fraudulent purchases.

No minimum wage bump To the Editor: Economist Bryan Caplan developed the theory of Rational Irrationality, which describes the tendency of people to systematically vote erroneously for policies that don’t necessarily solve an issue. These tendencies are the result of a person’s humane effort to aid others less well-off. Common policies that are affected by this methodology include, among others, minimum wage. Gov. Pat Quinn has proposed making Illinois’ minimum wage the highest in the nation. Although raising the minimum wage would undoubtedly put money in the hands of those who need it most, Illinois is not in a position to embark on a minimum wage crusade.

Illinois’ already lackluster business environment might not support such a change. You might recall that in 2011, New Jersey Gov. Christie sent letters to 553 Illinois-based businesses encouraging them to relocate to his state. With Illinois ranking among the top 10 states with the highest corporate and property taxes, Christie’s temptations might still resonate with strapped businesses. There is a point in which businesses might begin to consider the benefits of relocating to neighboring states. An increase in minimum wage, however beneficial it may be to some, might bring more businesses to this point. There will certainly be a proper time for this debate, but currently our efforts should go toward making Illinois a more business-hospitable state. When Illinois’ burgeoning pension system, unemployment rate, and cumbersome taxes are resolved, only then should we debate minimum wage. Anthony Mattioli McHenry

A pension-system proposal Illinoisans shouldn’t guarantee SPRINGFIELD – Mix pension financing, constitutional law and politics and you’ll either have a recipe to cure insomnia or the most important but under-discussed issue facing Illinois today. Illinois lawmakers are on the brink of making a mistake that could lock taxpayers in for hundreds of billions of dollars in new costs. The mistake in question is called a “pension guarantee.” Government worker unions are lobbying hard to make it so the state can be sued to pay more into the state’s five pension systems each year. In exchange for a small bump in employee retirement contributions, unions want taxpayers to hand them a blank check to fund an inherently flawed pension system. And that blank check equates to higher taxes. It’s pretty obvious this is a bad proposal. After all, you the taxpayer are being asked to guarantee pension investment returns – while having no say on how that money is invested.

More importantly, Illinois politicians have a long history of succumbing to union pressure and making pension benefits increasingly generous. And this proposed pension guarantee would make the taxpayers responsible for whatever future benefits are promised. Don’t think government pensions are generous? Think of five ablebodied people you know who retired in their mid-50s. Were most of them government workers? I thought so. This pension guarantee is being proposed under the guise of stopping politicians from shortchanging the systems in the future. Core government functions – such as educating children, incarcerating criminals and caring for the disadvantaged – would take the backseat to ponying up for pensions. Having sat through plenty of legislative hearings on pensions, I can tell you there is considerable disagreement about a provision in the Illinois Constitution regarding pensions. Here’s what it says: “Membership in any pension

Editorial Board: John Rung, Dan McCaleb, Jason Schaumburg, Kevin Lyons, Jon Styf, Kate Schott, Stacia Hahn

VIEWS Scott Reeder or retirement system of the State, any unit of local government or school district, or any agency or instrumentality thereof, shall be an enforceable contractual relationship, the benefits of which shall not be diminished or impaired.” Some folks, like me, believe that means a government worker is guaranteed by their pension fund not to lose what they have already earned. But government worker unions contend once a person enters government employment, they have boarded a rocketship that guarantees ever-increasing pensions – even as those benefits soar past the financial stratosphere. Benefit reform has been the subject of much verbal jousting in recent years. More often overlooked is another critical question: What happens

8THE FIRST AMENDMENT

when that pension rocket runs out of fuel? After all, the pension systems are independent of state government. In fact, the state pension code is quite clear on that matter: “Any pension payable under any law hereinbefore referred to shall not be construed to be a legal obligation or debt of the State, ... but shall be held to be solely an obligation of such pension fund, unless otherwise specifically provided in the law creating such fund.” Now an assortment of schemers want state taxpayers to guarantee those funds don’t go broke. It’s sort of like if the ne’er-do-well down the street were to knock on your door and ask you to co-sign his mortgage. Would you do it knowing it would put your family at risk? Well, that’s the predicament the state of Illinois finds itself in. And instead of talking about fundamentally reforming pensions into 401(k)-style plans – like 85 percent of the private sector – pension guarantee advocates want the Illinois taxpayers to dole out more and more cash to keep the faltering

system alive. Advocates of the guarantee want to change the law so that pension funds can demand money from the state – based on their investment and actuarial projections. And by the way, some of those current projections are more than a bit rosy. Moody’s Investors Services says pensions should use more realistic return assumptions: rates that currently are just more than 4.3 percent. But Illinois’ pension systems currently use a projected rate of return of about 8 percent. If the Illinois General Assembly creates a taxpayer guarantee, there is nothing to keep the pension boards from simply lowering their projected rate of return and demanding more from taxpayers. And if the state doesn’t pay up, the pension system can sue and our taxes will soar. • Scott Reeder is a veteran statehouse reporter and the journalist in residence at the Illinois Policy Institute.

Death toll rises at factories in Bangladesh The ASSOCIATED PRESS SAVAR, Bangladesh – Rescuers tried to free people believed trapped in the concrete rubble of a building housing mainly garment factories that collapsed in Bangladesh a day after workers complained cracks had developed in the structure. The death toll jumped to 149 after searchers worked through the night. “Many” people are still trapped, said the rescue operations leader, army Brig. Gen. Mohammed Siddiqul Alam Shikder said early Thursday. A clearer picture of the rescue operation would be available by afternoon, he said.

Searchers cut holes in the jumbled mess of concrete with drills or their bare hands, passing water and flashlights to those pinned inside the building near Bangladesh’s capital of Dhaka. “I gave them whistles, water, torchlights. I heard them cry. We can’t leave them behind this way,” said fire official Abul Khayer. Rescue operations continued through the night. The disaster came less than five months after a factory fire killed 112 people and underscored the unsafe conditions in Bangladesh’s massive garment industry. Workers said they had hes-

itated to enter the building on Wednesday morning because it had developed such large cracks a day earlier that it even drew the attention of local news channels. Abdur Rahim, who worked on the fifth floor, said a factory manager gave assurances that there was no problem, so employees went inside. “After about an hour or so, the building collapsed suddenly,” Rahim said. Abdul Halim, an official with the engineering department in Savar, said the owner was originally allowed to construct a five-story building but added another three stories illegally.

A man who was trapped in an eight-story building housing several garment factories is rescued Wednesday after the structure collapsed in Savar, near Dhaka, Bangladesh, killing nearly 150 people.

Numbers stay on list permanently Leader search has • REGISTRY Continued from page A1 To date, about 78 enforcement actions have been taken against companies and telemarketers for violations, according to the FTC website. A total of 58 of those actions have been resolved with final court orders requiring payment of more than $40 million in civil penalties and $22 million in redress or disgorgement. The FTC logs about 200,000 complaints each month from consumers tired of robocalls. The agency’s do-not-call list has decreased the number of unwanted calls for many consumers, but commission officials have acknowledged that new technology has allowed some unwanted calls to get through to those who do not want them. Locally, Attorney General Lisa Madigan this month reached a settlement in a lawsuit against a Lincoln-based company that placed numer-

ous telemarketing calls to consumers registered on the list. The company will be barred from future violations of the registry and must train its telemarketing employees on guidelines, as well as maintain records that will be monitored by the Attorney General’s Office. The national registry was created in 2003, and telephone numbers placed on the registry now remain permanent because of the Do-Not-Call Improvement Act of 2007, which became law in February 2008. “Prior to 2003, I can certainly remember the countless phone calls we got at dinnertime,” said Scott Mulford, spokesman for the Illinois Attorney General’s Office. “It started a groundswell to do something about it, which state and government officials eventually did.” The registry is free to consumers and doesn’t require repeat enrollment. Telemarketers have 31 days from the date a person registers to

stop calling. However, under federal and state law, some businesses and organizations still can call numbers on the registry. That includes calls from or on behalf of political organizations, charities and telephones surveyors, as well as companies with which a person has an existing business relationship, or those to whom a person has provided written permission to receive their calls. If a resident asks a company they have an existing business relationship with to place their number on its own do-not-call list, it must honor that request. “I think most people would agree that the results from the registry have been successful,” Mulford said. “There are a lot fewer interrupting calls being made.” To register, verify registration or file a complaint, visit www.donotcall.gov or call 888-382-1222.

New reports say suspect was unarmed • SUSPECT Continued from page A1 The U.S. officials who spoke to The Associated Press were close to the investigation but insisted on anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the case with reporters. Tamerlan, whom authorities have described as the driving force behind the plot, was killed in a shootout with police. Dzhokhar is recovering in a hospital from injuries sustained during a getaway attempt. Authorities had previously said Dzhokhar exchanged gunfire with them for more than an hour Friday night before they captured him inside a boat covered by a tarp in a suburban Boston neighborhood backyard. But two U.S. officials said Wednesday that he was unarmed when captured, raising questions about the gunfire and how he was injured. Investigators have said the brothers appeared to have been radicalized through jihadist materials on the Internet and have found no evidence tying them to a terrorist group. Dzhokhar told the FBI that they were angry about the U.S. wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and the killing of Muslims there, officials said.

Hillary Branyik of Boston kneels Wednesday at the site where the first bomb detonated April 15 near the finish line of the Boston Marathon on Boylston Street in Boston. How much of those conversations will end up in court is unclear. The FBI normally tells suspects they have the right to remain silent before questioning them so all their statements can be used against them. Under pressure from Congress, however, the Justice Department has said investigators may wait until they have gathered intelligence about other threats before reading those rights in terrorism cases. The American Civil Liberties Union has expressed concern about that. Regardless, investigators have found pieces of remote-control equipment among the debris and were

analyzing them, officials said. Also Wednesday, more than 4,000 mourners at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology paid tribute to a campus police officer who authorities say was gunned down by the bombing suspects. Bagpipes wailed as students, faculty and staff members and throngs of law enforcement officials paid their respects to MIT police officer Sean Collier, who was ambushed in his cruiser three days after the bombing. Among the speakers in Cambridge was Vice President Joe Biden, who condemned the bombing suspects as “two twisted, perverted, cowardly, knockoff jihadis.”

cost $40K to date • SEARCH Continued from page A1 Five Mental Health Board seats have changed hands since the search began to replace former Executive Director Sandy Lewis, who resigned to take a job with Virginia Commonwealth University. If appointed by the full County Board, Summers will fill the unexpired term of Sam Tenuto, who left the Mental Health Board to take a job with McHenry-based Pioneer Center for Human Services, which receives Mental Health Board funding. Critics have alleged in recent years that the Mental Health Board has become a bureaucracy that spends too much money on administration and overhead that instead should be disbursed to the more than two dozen agencies working with the mentally ill and disabled, which the board was created by voters to do. Summers, of Harvard, served four years on the MCC board, which censured him in 2007 for speaking out against the college’s controversial and ultimately rejected plan to build a health and wellness center, and a minor-league baseball stadium that would generate the revenue to pay off the bonds. Summers said he will hit the ground running and work as part of a team, but will never be afraid to speak his mind. He beat seven other applicants for the nomination. “I’m honored and humbled as I often am when it comes to public appointments. There were a goodly number of excellent candidates, which makes me humbler,” Summers said. Health Committee Chairwoman Donna Kurtz, also a former MCC trustee like Summers, said his experience in finance and law, along with his desire to ask tough questions, will be an asset. Kurtz, like Summers, was censured by the college

South Korea demands talks on closed factory SEOUL, South Korea – South Korea on Thursday warned of an unspecified “grave measure” if North Korea rejects a call for talks on a jointly run factory park that has been closed for nearly a month. In a televised briefing with reporters, Unification Ministry spokesman Kim Hyungsuk refused to describe what Seoul would do if Pyongyang doesn’t respond by a deadline Friday to a demand for formal working-level talks on the industrial complex just over the heavily armed border in the North Korean town of Kaesong. But Seoul may be signaling it will pull out its remaining workers from the factory across the border in Kaesong. That could lead to the end of a complex considered the last remaining symbol of inter-Korean cooperation.

Clashes in Iraq suggest Sunni anger boils over BAGHDAD – With Sunni gunmen beginning to confront the Shiite-led government’s security forces headon in northern and western Iraq, fears are growing of a return to full-scale sectarian fighting that could plunge the country into a battle merged with the Syrian civil war across the border. With more than 100 people killed over the past two days, it’s shaping up to be the most pivotal moment for Iraq since U.S. combat troops withdrew in December 2011. A crackdown by government forces at a protest site in the town of Hawija on Tuesday triggered the latest unrest. It has enraged much of the country’s restive Sunni Arab minority, adding fuel to an already smoldering opposition movement.

Minaret of famed Syria mosque destroyed BEIRUT – The 11th century minaret of a famed mosque that towered over the narrow stone alleyways of Aleppo’s old quarter collapsed Wednesday as rebels and government troops fought pitched battles in the streets around it, depriving the ancient Syrian city of one of its most important landmarks. President Bashar Assad’s government and the rebels trying to overthrow him traded blame over the destruction to the Umayyad Mosque, a UNESCO world heritage site. “This is like blowing up the Taj Mahal or destroying the Acropolis in Athens. This mosque is a living sanctuary,” said Helga Seeden, a professor of archaeology at the American University of Beirut.

board for publicly opposing the stadium proposal. “People are looking for someone who is a leader, who has diverse skills and experience,” said Kurtz, R-Crystal Lake. Kurtz, a longtime critic of the Mental Health Board, was put in a position to implement change when the County Board appointed her in January to head the committee in charge of filling its seats. The County Board also appointed Yensen, who has earned a reputation as a fiscal hawk, to hold its voting seat on the Mental Health Board. The County Board in March filled three vacant seats with newcomers, denying former Mental Health Board President Lee Ellis reappointment. Tenuto was one of two former members who stepped down to take a job with an agency receiving taxpayer funds from the Mental Health Board. Another member did not seek reappointment when her term expired Jan. 1, and former County Board liaison Mary Donner lost her 2012 re-election bid. This radically changed Mental Health Board will have to decide later this year who gets the job of running the agency. The Mental Health Board will stick with The Meyers Group, the Bethesda, Md., search firm it hired to find Lewis’ replacement. Yensen told the health committee Wednesday that the search to date has cost about $40,000. Former Deputy Director Todd Schroll has served as the Mental Health Board’s interim executive director since Lewis left. Schroll has applied for the full-time job, but Mental Health Board officials have not commented on speculation that he is the second finalist. Summers has run for Congress and Illinois state treasurer on the Green Party ticket, and lost his 2012 bid to run for County Board as a Democrat.

8COMMUNITY NEWS

LITTLE RELIEF FOR FLOODED FOX

There’s little good news for residents grappling with flooded properties as the Fox River continues to swell. The National Weather Service is continuing the flood warning through Sunday. Water levels have not changed much in the past three or four days. The river remains at major flood stage around 7.5 feet in McHenry, National Weather Service meteorologist Gino Izzi said. Anything above 7 feet is considered flood stage. And the water isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. “The problem with the Fox River is it’s fed by the Chain O’ Lakes,” Izzi said. “Water flow at the Chain O’ Lakes dramatically slows down the process of rising and cresting – it takes a long time to move through the lakes.” Water at the Algonquin gauge has fallen only about 3 inches in the past day, he said. After Sunday, the National Weather Service is predicting a moderate flood warning through Wednesday. But this weekend likely will bring some sunshine for those cleaning up flood damage. This weekend could bring the first spring-like temperatures this year, with partly or mostly sunny skies and temperatures in the mid- to high-60s.

ONE HURT IN DORR TOWNSHIP WRECK A man was taken to the hospital with nonlife-threatening injuries after a two-car crash Wednesday morning in an unincorporated area of McHenry County in Dorr Township, according to the Lakewood Police Department. A pickup truck heading west on Route 176 rear-ended a Ford Ranger that was stopped at the intersection of Route 176 and Dean Street while waiting to turn north onto Dean, police said. According to police, the driver of the pickup truck was later transported to Centegra Hospital – Woodstock with injuries. The other driver, a 61-year-old Woodstock man, was treated and released at the scene. Edward D. Horner, 27, of McHenry, was issued citations for failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident and operating an uninsured motor vehicle. Members of the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office and Lakewood Fire Department assisted with the incident, which took place about 6 a.m.

Bill Daley visits McHenry, ‘seriously looking’ at running for governor By JIM DALLKE jdallke@shawmedia.com McHENRY – At a business luncheon in McHenry on Wednesday, Bill Daley outlined goals for the next governor of Illinois, but he stopped short of announcing that he would run for the position. “All I’m saying is what I’ve been saying for a while; I’m seriously looking at it,” he told the Northwest Herald after Wednesday’s lunch at 31 North Banquet & Conference Center. “There are some good people that are looking at it also. The state’s got to change.” But Daley took an opportunity to size up current Gov.

MCC online course has 25 custom single-family homes in the works in Algonquin global reach

New subdivision planned By JOSEPH BUSTOS jbustos@shawmedia.com

ALGONQUIN – A developer who previously proposed a project along North River Road has presented revised plans for a new development. Greg Pantos, the managing member of the AK Group, wants to build the River Ridge Estates subdivision with 25 custom single-family homes. In 2008, Pantos presented a smaller project called Riverwoods on the Fox. It was rejected by the village for a variety of issues, including small lot sizes. In River Ridge Estates, 25 houses

would be on 26 acres of land. Pantos said he expects the project to take three to five years to build out, depending on how well the houses sell. “I think it’s going to turn out really nice,” Pantos said. “I think it will be spectacular when it gets done.” Developers have bought adjacent land to make it easier to run water and sewer to the development. Lot sizes were increased and the street layout was improved, according to a village memo written by Community Development Coordinator Russell Farnum. A portion of the property needs to be annexed to move the project forward.

Pantos said preliminary utility work may be done this year, and he hopes to have major work begin next spring. The houses would be a minimum of 3,000 square feet for two-story homes, and 2,500 square feet for ranches. The homes will have three-car garages. Starting prices will be $700,000, project architect Tony Divizio said. The proposed plan has riverfront improvements, including a riverwalk, individual boat slips for each new lot and a seawall along the river to help with erosion, Pantos said.

sshinneman@shawmedia.com HARVARD – The city will look to add a dump truck to its aging fleet and replace equipment at its wastewater treatment plant. Those two expenditures are among the most notable on Harvard’s fiscal 2013 budget, which the city will vote on Tuesday. “Those were the two top priorities,” City Administrator Dave Nelson said. “Everything else kind of fell into place.”

The city has budgeted for a second 1-ton dump truck for its Public Works Department to ease the burden on a 23-year-old truck. The city has budgeted $165,000 for new equipment toward the wastewater treatment plant. The money will go toward replacing a pre-treatment auger. Overall, the $9.92 million budget for the fiscal year that starts May 1 is balanced. “There’s virtually nothing new. No new services or anything of the such,” Nelson said. “We’re replacing equipment that’s 30 years old. ... We’re get-

ting to things that we wanted to do five years ago, but the money wasn’t there with the economy.” During the worst of the recession, the city was operating on “less than a maintenance budget,” Nelson said. “The cash flow is improving almost three-fold from where it was,” he said. “There’s light at the end of the tunnel, but we’re still in the tunnel.” The city also will use MFT funds to resurface up to 20 blocks of roadway this spring.

RICHMOND: SCHOOL BOARD

D-2 adds new technology, programs By EMILY K. COLEMAN ecoleman@shawmedia.com RICHMOND – Additional technology, exposure to the Spanish language and full-day kindergarten were given the go-ahead by the Nippersink District 2 board Wednesday evening. Some of the votes garnered applause from the audience, which has grown since the board proposed – and subsequently approved – a $1.5 million tax abatement, effectively giving back some of the $10.4 million in reserves it has accumulated to taxpayers. Many of the parents who have attended the meetings since the abatement was proposed have raised con-

cerns over the state and security of the district’s buildings, the technology available to students and some of the cuts that took place when the district was in debt. One of the programs cut was the foreign language program, which was brought back slightly modified in an unanimous vote. “It’s been on my list for nine years, so I’m doing a happy dance in my head,” board Vice President Sharon Bianchini said. Based off a survey of parents and staff, the district decided to bring back the exploratory Spanish class at Nippersink Middle School, curriculum director Belinda Veillon said. It would not

affect core subjects because it would be added to the “exploratory wheel,” rotating classes that include health, art, computers and music. The two elementary schools would share another full-time teacher, who would provide 30 minutes of language exposure per week for some of the older grades, she said. The board also unanimously approved $450,200 worth of technology, including iPads, netbooks, Smart boards and desktop communities, which would be distributed to classes and schools based on what teachers had requested, technology director Dale Harkness said. Parents of kindergar-

Wonder Lake food pantry collection set for May 11 WONDER LAKE – The Wonder Lake Neighbors Food Pantry is joining with the U.S. Postal Service for “National Stamp Out Hunger Day.” On May 11, residents are asked to leave food donations at either their mailboxes or at their local post office to be donated to their local food pantry. Local mail carriers will pick up donations when they deliver the mail. Volunteers of the Wonder Lake Neighbors Food Pantry will be located throughout Wonder Lake to accept monetary and food donations from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wonder Foods, Village Market, Horizontals, Dusty’s Pizza, Lizard Lounge and Paulie’s Pizza have joined with the Wonder Lake Neighbors Food Pantry in an effort to stamp out hunger in the community. Collection boxes are set up at these local businesses, and they will be donating 10 percent of their proceeds on this day. The Wonder Lake Veterinary Clinic also will be accepting pet food donations. For information, call the pantry at 815-355-5459.

ten-age students will be offered full-time kindergarten this fall as well, the board decided. The district is required to also offer half-day kindergarten. The board also decided to add another second-grade section, bringing the class size in line with kindergarten and first-grade class sizes, as well as reinstate the special education clerical position as full time, make the band director full time and bring the district occupational therapist position in-house. By not going through the Special Education District of McHenry County, the district will save nearly $28,000, Superintendent Dan Oest said.

McHENRY: FOOD DRIVE

Churches band together for food collection NORTHWEST HERALD McHENRY – Churches in northern McHenry County once again are uniting to conduct a Community Food Drive this month to battle hunger in the area. “We want to feed the hungry, stock the shelves of food pantries, which normally run low during this time of year, and demonstrate to our congregations and our communities the impact we can have as we work together,” Tim Beavis, pastor at The Or-

chard Church in McHenry, said in a news release. Last year, churches gathered nearly 7,200 pounds of food for local pantries. This year, members will gather both nonperishable food items and money that the pantries can use to buy meat, dairy and fresh produce. “In partnership with the Northern Illinois Food Bank, a $5 gift can be used to purchase the equivalent of 30 meals for a family of four,” Jeff Pittman, McHenry campus pastor at The Chapel,

said in the release. The churches are asking the community to participate by bringing nonperishable food items (no glass please) to McHenry West High School, 4724 W. Crystal Lake Road, McHenry, from 3 to 6 p.m. Sunday. All donations go to local food pantries. Participating churches are Community of Faith Lutheran Church in Spring Grove, Lifespring Community Church in Spring Grove, Light House Church

in McHenry, Fellowship of Faith Lutheran Church in McHenry, Meadowland Church in Johnsburg, Maranatha Assembly of God in McHenry, McHenry Evangelical Free Church in McHenry, Spring Grove Bible Fellowship in Spring Grove, The Chapel in McHenry and The Orchard Church in McHenry.

Grafton board to convene special finances meeting HUNTLEY – The Grafton Township Board will meet Thursday to discuss the annual auditing of the township’s finances. The board will convene for a special meeting at 7 p.m. inside the township offices, 10109 Vine

St. in Huntley, to discuss and possibly approve Grafton’s 2011 audit. The outgoing board also will discuss and take possible action on contracting an auditor for fiscal 2012 and 2013. Supervisor-elect Jim Kearns requested the meeting, township officials said. Kearns stands to inherit a township that nearly shut down earlier this year before the board approved a short-term loan to help with its cash-flow problems.

Marengo woman charged with DUI, endangering child MARENGO – A 25-year-old Marengo woman was charged this week with endangering a child after police allegedly found her drunk inside a car in her driveway while a child was left alone inside the house. Marengo police responded at 7:20 p.m. Monday to a reckless driving report at 1319 N. State St. Police found Sheila Benbennick intoxicated inside her car in the driveway of the home, Sgt. Rodney Riley said. Police also found that Benbennick left a 6-year-old child unattended in the home for about an hour while she was out, Riley said. Benbennick failed a Breathalyzer test that indicated her blood-alcohol content was over the legal limit of 0.08 percent, he said. Benbennick was charged with endangering the life or health of a child, a Class A misdemeanor; two counts of driving under the influence; and improper lane use. She is scheduled to appear in court May 20.

UNION: McHENRY COUNTY HISTORICAL SOCIETY LECTURE

TEDDY’S LIQUORS

Municipal planner to talk roads NORTHWEST HERALD UNION – In “Early Trails of McHenry County,” the last in the McHenry County Historical Society’s Sampler lecture series, Crystal Lake resident Ders Anderson will talk about a variety of early trails and roads, and about how Native Americans divined the most efficient ways of crossing wilderness. The program begins at 3 p.m. Monday, at the county historical museum, 6422 Main St. in Union. A municipal planner by

trade for 20 years and an architect by training, Anderson became greenways director of Chicago-based Openlands in 1994. He is responsible for the planning and implementation of projects related to the 4,300-mile greenway and 2,000-mile trail system adopted for northeastern Illinois. Anderson, 63, talks about such trailblazers as Frenchmen Jacques Marquette and René Robert Cavelier, Sieur de La Salle and Canadian explorer Louis Jolliet. And he continues to shed

light on many of the important routes these men and others used – including the old Chicago Road that originally linked forts at Detroit and Chicago. Today, Anderson said, just fragments remain along Routes 12 and 20 in Illinois, vestiges of a bygone day when utilitarian design and expediency took a back seat to interpreting the landscape. Advance registration is appreciated, but walk-ins are welcome. The cost is $10. For information, call 815923-2267.

Residents concerned MCC classes geared toward success after college about increased traffic • COURSE Continued from page B1

• SUBDIVISION Continued from page B1 “In my view, this is what will sell the property; this is what will add tremendous value to the project,” Pantos said. “It’s really going to improve that area.” Street layout and public improvements are designed to minimize the impact on high-quality trees, Farnum wrote. “The developer recognizes the value of the wooded lots and is making the right efforts to preserve that atmosphere within the project,” Farnum wrote. Water mains and sanitary sewers will be connected to the planned water mains built in the Prairie Path project or by tapping into new mains around the periphery of the Prairie Path project, Farnum wrote. Two retention ponds are planned to hold stormwater. A special service area also is proposed to make sure there is adequate maintenance of the common areas within the project. “The project is now rational from a conservation design and tree preservation standpoint, compliant with the comprehensive plan, and includes the necessary extensions of water, sewer and roadway interconnections that increase desirability of the project,” Farnum wrote. At a previous Planning and Zoning Commission meeting, Thomas Hayward and Bill Kennedy, owners of the Prairie Path subdivision that has yet to be built, objected to the proposed subdivision as pre-

“The drainage system in the road now, there’s nowhere for the water to go; it just puddles. The drainage problem there is ridiculous.” Sheryl Gafka Algonquin resident sented. The proposed road connections would affect open space, five single-family lots and utilities that have been planned, Hayward said. Kennedy said the road connection would lead to Prairie Path being a cut-through for traffic trying to avoid East Algonquin Road. Al and Sheryl Gafka, who live on River Road, are concerned about the loss of mature trees and the increased number of vehicles on North River Road. Pantos said five to six cars would be added to River Road around rush hour. The Gafkas also are worried about the possibility of more flooding. “The drainage system in the road now, there’s nowhere for the water to go; it just puddles,” Sheryl Gafka said. “The drainage problem there is ridiculous.” Public Works Director Bob Mitchard said the design would not exacerbate drainage problems. Pantos said that if water levels in detention ponds get too high after a large storm, water then would be diverted through a culvert, along curbs on the road and into the river. “Today it runs wild,” Pantos said.

“They are part of a growing movement to be more innovative and see what is possible outside of the classroom.” Unlike traditional online courses that usually charge tuition, include credit and have limited enrollment, massive open online courses are free, noncredit and open to anyone anywhere. According to a New York Times story published in November, the hope is the free courses can bring the best education in the world to the most remote corners of the planet, help people in their careers and expand intellectual and personal networks. The massive online courses started a few years ago at Ivy League schools and have quickly grown to include large consortiums, including edX, Coursera and Udacity.

The course at the Crystal Lake-based community college is being offered in collaboration with the Canvas Network, a company that offers students, teachers and institutions an opportunity to connect through an open, online course network. The college also is in the midst of switching over its online course management system to the Canvas Network. While brainstorming what the massive open online course at MCC would cover, officials decided to offer a class geared toward success in the workplace after college. “Online Reputation for Career Success” explores the concept of online reputation and its potential impact on participants’ job searches, employability and career success. It discusses how online accounts such as Twitter and Facebook can affect job outlooks, and covers the skills and strategies needed to improve an online reputation.

MCC reacts to president’s she has done “nothing in my opinion to warrant otherwise,” contract extension vote With one day before McHenry County College trustees are expected to vote on President Vicky Smith’s contract extension, some students and faculty are supporting the three-year president. Citing the growth of the college and her positive energy, Earth Science professor Paul Hamill said he hopes Smith’s contract will be renewed at Thursday’s board meeting and

he said. “She has done a wonderful job. She brings a lot of positive energy. It’s refreshing.” Hamill added that his colleagues in the science department generally feel the same about Smith. “Every one of us has a really good vibe for where she’s taking us,” he said. Students pointed to recent campus improvements in their

“There’s value in teaching students about their online reputation, how to search for it, evaluate it and manage it,” Harger said. “Students spend all that time and money on school, and they could be self-sabotaging themselves by being crazy on social media websites.” The course allows students to work at their own pace and log into the course at their convenience, and includes online lessons and discussion forums with auto-graded quizzes. Students are required to dedicate four hours of work for the course each week on the Internet. Unlike traditional courses where the teacher is the expert, instructors serve as facilitators. “I don’t have to proclaim to be an expert on online reputation because there are students in this course who have more expertise and can share that [knowledge] with others in class,” Harger said. “It’s a flipped

classroom with the instructor delivering the content while serving as a guide on the side.” Joannie Moran hopes to teach high school math some day. The Crystal Lake resident signed up for the course as a way to improve her online communication skills. “I want to learn more and more about online reputation and how people can be saved with their reputation,” said Moran, 19. “I would like to learn to be safe about my online reputation and learn how to communicate with other people online.” MCC plans to continue to offer massive open online courses, but also sees each opportunity as a way for students to try online education for free. “Online courses aren’t for everyone,” Harger said. “It’s on the student to see if they progress and like it.” For information, visit www.mchenry.edu.

support for Smith. “I hope she stays on,” MCC student Ryan Altman said. “The cafeteria is much better.” “The parking lot is terrible,” fellow student Tyler Tennant said. “But they are repaving it and redoing it. And it’s going to be a new design. I like that.” Students contacted Wednesday said they haven’t had many personal interactions with Smith, but they characterized her demeanor as positive. “Whenever I see her, she

seems to be in a good mood,” MCC student Joe Ross said. “I haven’t heard of any [students] not liking her.” Thursday’s MCC board vote comes after trustees removed a contract extension vote April 16 amid criticism that trustees were trying to push through an extension with a lame duck board. The board is considering extending Smith’s contract to June 2015.

Daley prioritizes ‘fiscal soundness’ for the state • DALEY Continued from page B1 Daley said that Illinois’ “fiscal soundness” must be priority No. 1 for whoever is the state’s next governor. “There’s no denying that Illinois is in a fiscal mess,” Daley said. “We can, and we must, attempt to do better.” Daley highlighted the state’s $97 billion in unfunded pension obligations, $9 billion in unpaid bills and a collapsing credit rating for the current economic woes. He also noted that Illinois has the ninth-highest income gap in the nation between the rich and poor. “These aren’t rankings to be proud of. They are shameful,” he said. Daley pointed to the work-

So many options on draft day

Wolves eke out victory No. 4 doubles team cements FVC Valley Division win

By TOM MUSICK tmusick@shawmedia.com CHICAGO – “And with the 20th pick in the first round of the NFL draft, the Chicago Bears select …” Wait, you wanted us to finish that sentence? Hang on until sometime after 9 p.m., and we should have an answer for you. Then again, it’s possible the Bears will trade down in the draft, and everyone will have to stay up past bedtime (or wait until Friday) for a selection. Barring any trades, the Bears have the No. 20 overall pick in today’s first round. They Inside also have a pick in the second round Northwest Her- (No. 50) on Friday, ald sports writer as well as selections Barry Bottino’s in fourth round (No. 2013 NFL first117), fifth round (No. round mock draft 153) and sixth round and predictions (No. 188) on Saturon all the Bears’ day. draft picks. As for the Bears’ PAGE C3 third-round selection, that now belongs to the Miami Dolphins because of the Brandon Marshall trade. That deal worked out all right, we think. Meanwhile, the Bears’ seventhround selection bounced to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and then to the New England Patriots. Think of it as a hot-potato pick. Maybe it will change hands a few more times in the days ahead. But what matters most is today’s first round. The Bears and every other team are allotted 10 minutes to make their selections, although some will decide faster. In 2012, the first round finished in three hours on the nose. That equaled about 5 minutes and 37 seconds per pick, and if that pace holds true today, then the Bears should announce their selection at 9:15 p.m. or so. Below are seven possible picks if the Bears remain at No. 20. But don’t be surprised if general manager Phil Emery selects an unexpected player instead. After all, who predicted that he would hire a head coach from the Canadian Football League?

ALGONQUIN – Even during warmups, it was evident this was not an ordinary, middle-of-the-season boys tennis dual meet. After getting rained out twice before, Prairie Ridge and Jacobs got a break in the weather to play the most anticipated dual of the Fox Valley Conference Valley Division season Wednesday. The buildup didn’t disappoint. With Prairie Ridge leading, 3-2, the No. 2 singles and No. 4 doubles matches advanced to third sets almost simultaneously. Mitch Mohr and Ross Carpenter pulled out a 6-7 (7-9), 6-4, 7-5 win at No. 4 doubles and gave the Wolves a 4-3 win. Carpenter and Mohr, both seniors, had been in pressure situations before but only on the football field for the Wolves. “That’s why we play,” Carpenter added. “That was awesome.” Carpenter and Mohr went up, 4-1, to start the third set but Jacobs freshmen Michael Bujacz and William Liby battled back to tie the set at 5. “We were feeling the ride at 4-1,” Carpenter said. “We might have got a little comfortable.” Mohr said the pressure of needing the win for the team and his teammates surrounding the court screaming brought out the best in them. “Everything from the atmosphere to everyone’s attention,” Mohr said. “We just transformed into something else.” Wolves coach Naveed Heydari said it was great to win, especially for his senior leaders at No. 4 doubles. “It’s huge for [Carpenter’s and Mohr’s] confidence heading into the conference tournament,” Heydari said.

SECTION C

CHICAGO – It seems crazy now, but the notion of forward LeBron James joining Derrick Rose and the Bulls was a real thing during the summer of 2010. It didn’t happen, of course. James hired Jim Gray for an embarrassing ESPN interview in which he announced he was “taking my talents to South Beach.” Translation: He was joining the Miami Heat, which immediately transformed from a playoff outsider to a championship favorite. Meanwhile, the Bulls were left with a big allowance to find a free agent. See: Boozer, Carlos. Since the day he signed a fiveyear, $75 million deal with the Bulls on July 7, 2010, Boozer has served as a lightning rod for fans here who yearn for another NBA title. Those three-peats were great, but a 21st century championship was in order. One problem. Boozer wasn’t

Boozer never will be LeBron, but the veteran power forward can help lift the Bulls closer to a playoff series win today against the Brooklyn Nets. The Bulls are tied in the best-of-seven series, 1-1, with a pair of home games today and Saturday.

The cameras will focus on injured point guard Derrick Rose and whatever designer suit that he chooses to wear while he watches the game from the Bulls’ bench. Maybe it’s Armani. Maybe it’s Hugo Boss. Maybe it’s Maybelline, I don’t know. Meanwhile, the announcers will

rave about Joakim Noah and his incredible will. All of that is true, by the way. Noah is a very good basketball player and a Hall of Fame competitor, which was proved by his terrific Game 2 in which he scored 11 points with 10 rebounds despite having torn plantar fascia tissue in his right foot. But let’s not forget about Boozer’s importance to the Bulls this postseason. Sure, it’s easy to pick on Boozer for not being better on defense or around the rim. I’ve done it. If you watch the Bulls regularly, you probably have done it, too. Boozer is built like a Mack truck but plays like a hybrid SUV. He prefers fadeaway, rainbow jump shots to power post moves. He struggles badly on defense. He lacks the type of leaping ability that almost every other NBA player possesses. But guess what? He’s a really good player. Entering Game 3, Boozer leads the Bulls in playoff scoring with 19 points a game on 56.3 percent shooting.

JACOBS BOYS BASKETBALL

New coach Roberts stands out from crowd Ex-Round Lake coach described as ‘hard worker’ By JOE STEVENSON joestevenson@shawmedia.com Jacobs athletic director Dan Vosnos envisioned himself as if he were a high school basketball player during the interview process for a new boys head coach. In doing that, one candidate stood out to Vosnos. “I looked at the type of person

he is,” Vosnos said. “I put myself in the kids’ shoes and thought, ‘Would this coach motivate me and push me to my limits?’ He was eager, a hard worker and prepared. He’s a man of high integrity.” Vosnos’ choice was Jim Roberts, 34, who coached at Round Lake the past three seasons. Roberts was announced as the Golden Eagles’ new coach Wednesday. His employment as coach and social studies teacher can become official at the District 300 school board meeting May 13. “I like to think I’m organized,” said Roberts, a former star at Lake Zurich. “I have a plan, a vision. I have experience and have been involved with a number of different schools, worked with different kids

and coaches and administrators. The environment I grew up in gave me experiences to be successful.” Roberts will take over for Jim Hinkle, who retired after a 49-year coaching career. Lake Zurich was in the Fox Valley Conference when Roberts played; he Jim Roberts was the 1996 Northwest Herald Boys Basketball Player of the Year. Roberts went on to play at NCAA Division II Northern Michigan and was named a GTE Academic All-American for the 2000 season. Roberts will become the fifth coach in Jacobs’ 38-year history, fol-

lowing Ken Slimko, John Gypalo, Cliff Doll and Hinkle. Roberts is the son of former Buffalo Grove football and basketball coach Rich Roberts, who had a profound effect on his son’s career path. “When I was very young, he was a basketball coach,” Jim said. “In fifth grade, he broke my heart and gave up basketball for football. But by doing that it allowed him to coach my feeder teams and see me play.” Roberts’ Round Lake teams were 19-63 in his three seasons. The school won seven games combined in the two seasons before he arrived. “No offense to who was here before me, but Round Lake was not a very respected name in basket-

CL Central rallies in 7th to beat C-G

KIRSTEN STEVENS Prairie Ridge, sr. Stevens improved to 7-2 on Wednesday after the Wolves’ 4-1 win over Huntley, when she struck out 16 and allowed only one hit – a sixth-inning home run. She has 100 strikeouts this spring, averaging 11.1 a game. She is batting .476 with two home runs – both of which came in a 10-0 win over Sycamore on Saturday, when she struck out nine.

Noteworthy Toughening up: Marengo will play eight games in five days next week after hosting Richmond-Burton on Thursday and traveling to Loyola Academy on Friday. That’s a lot of innings to log, but after Marengo played through 15 innings to hand Barrington its first loss last week, Indians coach Dwain Nance says his team will be ready. The Indians won the game on a bases-loaded walk after failing to score in extra innings despite twice loading the bases with nobody out. “When you’re going through that, you have a lot of ups, a lot of downs and the girls were getting mentally fatigued along with physically,” Nance said. “But [winning the game] shows we can be mentally tough and hang with a very good team and beat a very good team. It just gives us more confidence.” Heading into the busy stretch, the Indians have struggled to establish much offensive rhythm – something Nance expects to change as the temperatures begin to rise and as the Indians begin to play more regularly. Moving on: Cary-Grove returned to the field Wednesday without ace Lindsay Efflandt, who missed Wednesday’s game against Woodstock North after being hit in the face by a ball hit by Prairie Ridge’s Kirsten Stevens. Efflandt suffered broken bones in her face, and the Trojans don’t yet have a timetable for the Yale-bound pitcher’s return. Coach Tammy Olson said Efflandt was scheduled to see doctors Wednesday. Olson was impressed with how C-G played on in Monday’s 3-1 win over Prairie Ridge after Efflandt had to leave the game in the top of the fourth inning. “Everybody is very concerned about Lindsay and how she’s doing and what she has to overcome now,” Olson said Wednesday. “We have to make some changes, but there’s no difference in our goals. We haven’t changed anything. Everybody is expected to work toward excellence, and we’ll continue on with that mode of thought.”

ball circles,” Roberts said. “I think Round Lake has a little bit of respect now for how we play and conduct ourselves. Success here is not with the wins and losses the kids have.” Roberts was proud of his players who stuck with him and also proud that some who he felt did not represent the program well left. “Wins and losses aren’t everything,” Vosnos said. “He moved the program ahead and was good at teaching life lessons. He prepared his teams well and maximized the talent he had. We feel he’s the right coach for our program at this time.” Roberts previously worked at Leyden, Lincoln Park and Barrington as an assistant coach and teacher.

Jacobs wins No. 1, No. 2 singles • TENNIS Continued from page C1 Also winning for Prairie Ridge were Hayden Dzvirisin at No. 3 singles, Jack Lamar and Danny Van Brosch at No. 2 doubles and Matt Cox and Matt Altman at No. 3 doubles. Jacobs dominated at the top spots with freshmen Kailash Panchapakesan and Kendrick Chong winning at No. 1 and 2 singles, respectively. At No. 1 doubles for the Golden Eagles, Kingsley Bernardo and Brandon Sidor

defeated Bij Heydari and Brad Hennning, 6-0, 6-1. Sidor and Bernardo dominated at the net. “We’re just trying to be more aggressive at the net,” Sidor said. “We really work well together.” Bernardo said he and Sidor are connecting as a team on the court. “We both knew when we should attack and when to defend,” Bernardo said. “We’ve got great chemistry.” Jacobs coach Jim Benson was disappointed with the loss but said he told his team

it was only a one-point difference. Standings in FVC divisions for tennis are determined by individual match wins. Prairie Ridge is 4-0 in the FVC Valley with 25 points. Jacobs is 1-1 with nine points. Benson is hoping McHenry and Cary-Grove, the remaining opponents for the Wolves, can earns some wins and give his team a chance. “It’s not like it’s over,” Benson said. “Our goal from here on out is to not give up a point and steal it away at the end.”

Samardzija, Cubs Sox’s offense still lags REDS 1, CUBS 0

can’t catch break The ASSOCIATED PRESS CINCINNATI – Another well-pitched game ended in a close loss for the Cubs. Jeff Samardzija (1-4) had his fourth consecutive loss since beating Pittsburgh on Opening Day when the Cubs lost to the Cincinnati Reds, 1-0, on Wednesday. The righthander allowed seven hits and three walks with eight strikeouts and a wild pitch. The hard-luck Samardzija had to battle through a cut on his right index finger but matched Mat Latos, his mound opponent, pitch-bypitch until the sixth inning. Shin-Soo Choo hit a bouncer through the mound that Samardzija tried to snag with his right hand. The play resulted in an infield single and a cut on Samardzjia’s index finger. “I was keeping a close eye on him, but it was obvious it didn’t affect him. He pitched great,” Cubs manager Dale Sveum said. Latos retired the first 10 batters and 15 of the first 16 he faced, and Todd Frazier hit a long home run to help the Reds complete a wacky, impressive, three-game series. With one out in the sixth inning of a scoreless tie, Frazier blasted a 2-1 pitch 480 feet to straightaway center field to increase his team-leading home run total to six. The homer, which bounced high off the batter’s eye, is the longest at Great American Ball Park this season and the seventh-longest in the facility’s 11-year history. “Frazier is a heck of a hitter,” Samardzija said. “It was a cutter that went over the plate. I’ve faced him since my freshman year a Notre Dame when he and his brother were at Rutgers.”

Next for the Cubs Cubs at Miami, 6:10 p.m. today, WCIU, AM-720

The finger was just a minor distraction. “It was weird because of the blood, but it’s all right,” Samardzija said. “It is a baby cut.” The Cubs’ pitching was outstanding in the series even though they dropped two out of three to the Reds. “We were holding the best hitting team in the National League to a couple runs a game,” Sveum said of the Cubs’ 5-4 loss in 13 innings and the 4-2 win in 10 innings before this finale. “That’s where it begins,” Reds manager Dusty Baker said. “The Cubs got great starting pitching, too. We were told they were getting great starting pitching.” Latos (1-0), the victim of two blown saves in his first four starts this season allowed four hits and a walk with four strikeouts. Jonathan Broxton replaced Latos with two runners on base and nobody out in the eighth. Both runners moved up on Cody Ransom’s sacrifice bunt, but pinch-hitter Alfonso Soriano struck out and shortstop Zack Cozart went deep behind second base to flag down David DeJesus’s grounder and throw him out to end the inning. “That was an unbelievable play in that situation,” Sveum said. “Before that, DeJesus hit a foul that missed the line by less than a foot. That’s what happens when things aren’t going your way.”

SOX INSIDER Meghan Montemurro

CHICAGO – For better or worse, the White Sox have become accustomed to playing in close ballgames. Unfortunately for the Sox, they have found themselves typically on the losing side. They were able to halt the trend for at least one day with a 3-2 win against the Cleveland Indians on Wednesday to snap a fourgame losing streak. Eighteen of the Sox’s 20 games have been decided by three runs or less, going 6-11 in those games, which includes a 5-6 record in one-run games. Alex Rios’ two-run homer in the fifth gave the Sox a 3-0 lead and ultimately saved the Sox (8-12). The Indians (8-11) responded with two runs in the sixth and stranded the tying run on third. “It’s not an easy thing to do when you play games this close all year, but you have to battle through these things,” Rios said. “It’s a long season and we’re going to go through stretches like this, hopefully not too many.” Starting pitching again saved the Sox. Jose Quintana (2-0) held Cleveland to two runs in five innings and set a career high in consecutive scoreless innings pitched (18 2/3), which ended on Jason Kipnis’ RBI single in the sixth. “All I’m trying to do is take it inning by inning, hitter by hitter,” Quintana said through a translator. “That’s about it, just doing the little things to control the game.” Although the Sox found a way to win Wednesday, their brand of baseball – a reliance on home runs and an inability to string consecutive base hits – isn’t conducive to long-term success. They aren’t producing with runners in scoring position (1 for 8 against Cleveland), continuing a season-long problem. The Sox have scored two runs or fewer seven times this season and also have been held to five hits or less seven times, including Wednesday’s win (five hits). “When it’s a group and you’re not getting it done

Sox Insider WHITE SOX 3, INDIANS 2 Tipping point: With the game-tying run standing at third base and only one out in the sixth inning, White Sox reliever Nate Jones found a way to strike out Nick Swisher and force Ryan Raburn to fly out to left field to preserve the Sox’s one-run lead. Addison Reed pitched a perfect ninth for his sixth save in as many chances to end the Sox’s four-game losing streak. On the mound: Jose Quintana retired the first nine batters he faced before working his way into trouble in the fourth, loading the bases. A double play ball helped him out of the jam, part of a five-inning effort that held the Indians to two runs. Quintana (2-0) struck out three batters and surrendered four hits on 92 pitches. At the plate: Alex Rios snapped an 0 for 13 slump with his two-run homer in the fifth off Cleveland starter Zach McAllister (1-3). Jeff Keppinger (2 for 4) drove in the Sox’s other run for his second RBI in three games. In his previous eight games, Keppinger had tallied one run. Alejandro De Aza and Alexei Ramirez were the only other Sox to record a hit. Under the radar: Despite the win, the Sox are 4-6 against the American League Central this year including a 2-3 record against the Indians which have outscored the Sox 16-12. The Sox went 37-35 against the division last year for their first winning record in the division since 2008. consistently, it’s tough on everybody, it’s not just tough on me,” manager Robin Ventura said. “I’ve been on their side, too, and know what’s it like sitting there and I’ve been the problem. I get it. Eventually, it moves on and you just keep playing.” The Sox can’t survive on solid starting pitching and an efficient bullpen the entire season if the offense doesn’t show up on a consistent basis. Each starting pitcher will have his fair share of rough outings and the bullpen will blow leads, however, none of that matters if the Sox can’t score. In 2012, every playoff team outscored their opponents by at least 56 runs. Currently, opponents have outscored the Sox by six runs.

The Sox are getting tired of talking about their noshow offense, and only 16,765 came to U.S. Cellular Field to watch them scratch together three runs. It’s shaping up to be a long summer on the South Side. “I feel like that’s part of the game: Sometimes the offense will be there, sometimes it won’t,” Quintana said. “But the main thing for me is to do my job that way I can help the team.” • Meghan Montemurro covers the White Sox and Cubs for Shaw Media.

WHITE SOX NOTES

Ventura content to ‘mix and match’ By MEGHAN MONTEMURRO mmontemurro@shawmedia.com CHICAGO – With an offense that is still trying to get on track, the White Sox’s flexible roster has given manager Robin Ventura plenty of lineup options. But Ventura hopes one or two players can find a rhythm at the plate so he can create a consistent lineup. “You just mix and match and if one of them gets hot you probably run with it,” Ventura said. “It’s like with Gordon [Beckham] out, you mix and match and you have the ability to do that unless somebody forces you not to.” Blake Tekotte started his first game since getting called up after Dayan Viciedo landed on the disabled list with an oblique strain. The center fielder went 0 for 2 with two strikeouts and a walk in Wednesday’s 3-2 win against the Indians. Ventura said he wanted Tekotte to get game experience, though Jordan Danks and Dewayne Wise remain the primary outfield

options while Viciedo is sidelined. Ventura also praised third baseman Conor Gillaspie’s performance since Beckham’s wrist surgery led to Jeff Keppinger moving to second base. He didn’t rule out Gillaspie, who is hitting .304, logging time at first base once Beckham returns. “From the outside, not having a left-handed hitter somewhere in the middle breaking up the lineup looked like a weakness,” Ventura said. “He’s shown he has the ability to do that. He definitely has earned more time somewhere out there whether it’s third or first.” Axelrod impresses: Dylan Axelrod can thank pitcher John Danks for his chance to impress the Sox. Axelrod, armed with an 89 mph fastball, has made the most of his opportunity in the Sox’s rotation as Danks continues to rehab from shoulder surgery. Although Axelrod is still searching for his first win, he has posted two consecutive six-inning outings while

holding the opposition to two runs or fewer. “When a lefty is throwing the way he is, he’s crafty and knows how to pitch, where a righty does it people don’t know why or how,” Ventura said. “But he has the ability to make guys miss. That’s not easy to do especially with him working off counts and hitters’ aggressiveness.” Dunn tries to find groove: In the Sox’s 20th game of the season, slugger Adam Dunn finally recorded his first multiwalk game. Dunn’s three walks Wednesday matched his season total entering the game, though he struck out in his other at-bat. However, Dunn is batting .100, which is the second-lowest average among qualified hitters in the majors. Only Minnesota rookie Aaron Hicks (.073) has a worse average. Of Dunn’s seven hits in 70 at-bats, three are home runs. “He wants to get hits,” Ventura said. “I think the mixture of that is what you’re looking for. Walks are good, but he’s also here to hit some homers.”

Boozer’s scoring ability outweighs defensive deficiencies Jazz. He has averaged more points in his playoff career than fellow All-Stars such as Pau Gasol, Steve Nash, Joe Johnson and Rajon Rondo. The short-handed Bulls desperately need each of his contributions. Scoring has been at a premium around these parts since Rose drove to the paint and crumpled to the hardwood a year ago Sunday. Without Rose lead-

ing the offense during the regular season, the Bulls averaged 93.2 points a game, which was tied for worst in the NBA with the Philadelphia 76ers and Washington Wizards. At times, Benny the Bull seemed like a viable option to join the active roster. Maybe Tom Thibodeau could design a couple of screens and have the furry mascot launch one of those behind-the-back, halfcourt

shots as he often does during timeouts. OK, maybe Boozer is a safer option. Unfortunately, Boozer’s subpar defense is part of the deal. He’s not purposefully negligent on the defensive end – he really does want to do the right thing – but he’s slow-footed and occasionally forgets to slide across the paint for help defense. At least for now, Boozer’s offensive strengths out-

weigh his defensive flaws. No, Boozer never will be LeBron. No, Boozer never will be a fan favorite in this city. But he’s a really good player. The Bulls need him to succeed. • Northwest Herald sports columnist Tom Musick can be reached at tmusick@shawmedia.com and on Twitter @tcmusick.

McHenry chef fights disease just arthritis setting in,” he said. “I figured the loss of get-up-and-go was just the fact that I was getting older.” He went from doctor-to-doctor and was misdiagnosed over and over again. Finally, a doctor determined he might be suffering from Lyme disease. In April 2012, Ventresca had to quit his current full-time job because he just didn’t have the strength. He’s been home for a year now. “Mike is a great guy and a great outdoorsman,” said Babe Winkelman, who has fished with Ventresca. “It is unfortunate that the medical community so often does not recognize when a person has Lyme disease. It is most important that this disease gets treated as soon as possible. It can be fatal, you know.” “Mike is one of my best friends,” said McHenry’s Spence Petros, a Freshwater Fishing Hall of Famer. “It’s awful to see what this disease is doing to him. He can’t fish, and he didn’t even go out and hunt one time this past year. Being sidelined is eating him up. He loved talking to all the people at Rosemont. I pray he can recover.” After seeing many doctors, Ventresca is seeing a Lyme disease specialist in Wisconsin next week and hopes he can get some relief from his pain and be put on the road to recovery.

By STEVE SARLEY sportsdesk@nwherald.com McHenry’s Mike Ventresca burst on the outdoors scene in January 2011 at the Chicago Outdoors Sport Show at Rosemont. Billed by his nickname, “Chef Green Acres,” Ventresca wowed large audiences with his seminars on cooking game and fish and also his demonstrations in which he skinned and butchered a whitetail deer carcass live on the show’s stage. Now, he’s battling Lyme disease. The short, stocky Ventresca is a former rodeo bullrider. He looks like he could pick one of them up and body slam it if need be. He definitely casts a “tough guy” appearance, looking nothing like what you’d imagine a chef to resemble. Clad in his cowboy hat and wearing a white athletic undershirt, Ventresca doesn’t dress the part of a culinary master, either. How popular were Mike’s performances? Showgoers would actually walk right past seminars being given by Al Lindner and Kevin Van Dam to watch Mike whip up a batch of his bluegill lasagna. There was talk about a Chef Green Acres TV show and countless people promised to buy a cookbook if Mike wrote one. The guy was truly

When the 2013 outdoors show schedule rolled around, Chef Green Acres was nowhere to be found. People were astounded that Mike wasn’t returning to the stage. Many, many people wanted to know where Mike had disappeared to. Well, a 3,000-pound bull couldn’t sideline Ventresca, but a tick was able to do the dastardly deed. In late 2011, Mike fell ill. He was sore and achy and had a complete absence of energy. “I thought the soreness was

Annual guide to the fishing guides I promised my annual list of guides that I can recommend that ply their trade on waters within a reasonable drive. Here they are: Spence Petros – www.spencepetros.com, 815-455-7770: This Hall of Fame angler books weekday trips on Lake Geneva and Lake Delavan in May and June. He always fills up because a trip with Spencer is the closest you can get to guaranteeing yourself a day on the water that you will remember forever. He is taking a few dates for muskies and panfish throughout July, August and September, too. Capt. Bob Jenkins – www. challengerfishingcharters.com, 888-427-8262: Capt. Bob runs out of Waukegan. He takes his big boat out for salmon and trout and also runs a nifty center-console craft that is absolutely perfect for perch. Capt. Bob is the only charter on the big pond that can get you a limit of tasty golden perch while fishing in a comfy boat that is designed for what you are doing. Steve Everetts – Finseeker’s Guide Service, 847-707-1827: Steve is a licensed captain and my “goto-guy” for Lake Delavan fishing information. He is the best on that body of water, hands down. I have written a number of times about trips with Steve when we have caught way more than our fair share of big pike and big bass. Capt. Bob Rossa – www.migratorfishhunt.com, 815-575-4665: Capt. Bob is returning to beautiful North Point Marina as his base of operations. He is a consummate professional and almost always sends his clients home with plenty of tasty fillets. Heck, even if you didn’t catch fish, Captain Bob’s stories would be worth the price of the charter alone. Eric Haataja – wibigfish.com, 414-546-4627: This young fellow fishes all over the state of Wisconsin and catches fish on every lake and river he hits. I have never met anyone who was so well versed on as many bodies of water as Eric is. He is respected by the top pros

and is often seen on television with John Gillespie and Babe Winkelman. Jim Tostrud – www.wildlifevisions.com: This is a guide who is great with children. Part guide/ part fish artist, the incredibly talented Tostrud has a good handle on what’s hot on Geneva. In my opinion, he’s the best at going after Geneva’s huge bluegills and mammoth crappies. Jim is the perfect guy to hit the water with for a dad and a kid or two. Carl Kaufmann – Carl Kaufmann Guide Service, 815-3382475: Carl perfectly defines the word “gentleman.” He is truly one of the nicest guys in the business. Kaufmann is superb at finding big bass and pike on both Lake Geneva and Lake Delavan. If one is off, the other is usually on, so Carl’s knowledge of both of them gives him a big edge. Carl is great with kids and first-timers and nobody works harder to make sure that you catch fish. Pat Harrison – www.patharrisonoutdoors.com, 847-980-4640: A good friend, who now possesses a Captain’s license. He knows the Fox Chain as well as anyone and is very reasonable. He offers a combination fishing/camping weekend outing that will have you fishing during virtually every daylight hour. Chris Taurisano, 630-330-9090: This young gun’s “T-Bone Guide Service” specializes in northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin waters. He fishes for everything from panfish to bass and walleye to muskies. He is recommended by Spence Petros, who let Chris teach about the Fox Chain at Spence’s fishing classes.

Tackle and Taxidermy in Crystal Lake reports: “The good news is that all the lakes and ponds that were so low all of last year are full again. The bad news is that so many people along the rivers are sandbagging to save their homes. Right now, the ponds and lakes will be your best bet for spring fishing. As the water warms, bass, crappies and bluegills will be in the shallows. Shallow running crank baits, spinner baits and Senkos will work well for bass. Panfish can be caught on Cubby Mini-Mites or small jigs with a wax worm or minnow.” Call 815-455-2040 for updated reports. Major road construction is under way near Route 176, right in front of Dave’s place. He will be open during the construction, but please be careful getting in and out of his lot. For up-to-the-minute water conditions on the Fox Chain and Fox River, go to www.foxwaterway. state.il.us/ or call 847-587-8540. You can call Wisconsin’s Lake Michigan Fishing Hotline at 414382-7920 to hear the latest fishing information for Lake Michigan and its tributaries. Wisconsin’s regular inland game fish season opens on Saturday, May 4. Turkey numbers: 923 birds were harvested during the 2013 Illinois youth wild turkey season. The season ran March 30 and 31 for the south zone and April 6 and 7 for the north zone. Last year, 1,300 birds were harvested. The record for the youth season was set last year with 1,300 wild turkeys harvested. This year 4,468 permits were issued as opposed to just 4,100 last year. This year, three birds were harvested in McHenry County, topping the two taken last year.

Stranger’s encouraging words inspire woman toward goal Dear Abby: I was moved by the letter from “Losing Slowly in Ohio” (Jan. 14), who is 50 pounds overweight and walks every day with her friend to lose weight. She said that almost daily people made fun of them. My heart goes out to her. I was in her shoes once. With diet and exercise, I lost more than 60 pounds, and I’ve kept it off. But I was never ridiculed as she was. On the contrary, one day after I had just begun a daily 1-mile jog and was struggling to keep going, I passed by a man who cheerfully called out to me to “keep at it, and one day you’ll be a 10!” Abby, I can’t tell you what that meant to me. I thought

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips about his encouragement whenever I felt hopeless and was thinking of giving up. The memory of his kind words inspired me to go on. Thirty years later, I still think about his encouragement with amazement and gratitude. We all have a choice: We can be kind to each other and offer friends and strangers alike support for the challenges we all face, or we can make ourselves feel superior by being cruel and demeaning. In the end, our choice

shapes our character and we receive what we give, so we must choose wisely. I’m sorry “Losing” has met with only ignorant jerks so far. I would be honored to pay it forward and tell her how incredibly brave she is, and to encourage her to stick with it. Because she has the courage to keep exercising in the face of constant humiliation, I know without a doubt that she will reach her goals.

– Wendy In Colorado Dear Wendy: Thank you for your upbeat response. Many other readers were quick to “weigh in” with letters of support for “Losing Slowly”: Dear Abby: I, too, have a weight problem, which I am working to resolve. But I can

tell you from experience that the worst kind of discrimination is directed against people with weight problems. I have been insulted in the workplace, in restaurants and doctor’s offices. I have not been hired for jobs because I am perceived as fat and lazy. I am NOT lazy! I keep a clean house, work hard at my job as a secretary every day, and I am a good wife and parent. We may ignore it and pretend it doesn’t hurt us or matter, but I can tell you it IS painful, demeaning, and it doesn’t go away. I have been in meetings or at social functions and have had to excuse myself to have a good cry. –

ing Slowly” know she has another option to continue her new, healthy lifestyle in a safe environment. I have worked in malls for years, and they have all had a mall walkers’ club. The mall allows people in to walk, including many seniors, before it opens in the morning. There she will have access to a place where everyone is on the same page. The walkers are safe from traffic, the climate and morons who have the manners of a junkyard dog. The regulars there can tell her how many miles they can cover. It’s a great society of people who support and root for each other. –

Never Giving Up In Southern California

ASK DR. K Dr. Anthony Komaroff The new recommendations stem from a better understanding of how cervical cancer develops. It doesn’t develop very rapidly. Rather, there are clear precancerous stages that take years to progress. What’s the downside of an annual Pap test? For young women in particular, frequent Pap tests can lead to false positive results (the test result suggests a possible cancer, but there really is no cancer). That false positive result can lead to unnecessary worry and anxiety. It also can lead to further, and invasive, diagnostic tests such as a colposcopy and biopsy of the cervix. These invasive diagnostic tests, in turn, can cause vaginal bleeding, infections and pain. And, less often, the Pap test and HPV test can produce false negative results (the test result is normal, but there really is a cancer). For cervical cancer and many other cancers, our screening tests are not perfect.

With a perfect test, every time it came back abnormal there would really be a cancer – and that would justify additional invasive diagnostic tests. And with a perfect test, every time it came back normal you could know for sure that you were free of that cancer. If there were a perfect test, of course you would want to have it periodically. But if the test were imperfect, and could cause you complications, you’d want to have it when it was more likely to benefit you than to harm you. So recommendations as to how often a woman should have a Pap test are based on what studies show are the risks of a false positive or false negative result, and how likely cervical cancer is in the person having the test. For example, cervical cancer is less common in young women than in women in their late 50s. The bottom line: You still need the Pap (and the HPV) test, but not as often as you did in the past.

Wisconsin Dear Abby: I applaud her effort and your response, but may I raise the issue of people like myself who are ridiculed about being too THIN? Strangers say things like “Eat something, or the wind will blow you away.” Please remind your readers making fun of very thin people is just as hurtful as doing it to overweight individuals. – Wisp Of

INTRODUCING THE “ALL NEW” MARTIN CHEVROLET IN CRYSTAL LAKE!

Women need Pap tests, just fewer Dear Dr. K: I’m a woman in my 30s, and I’ve never had an abnormal Pap test. Do I still need one every year? Dear Reader: The answer used to be yes. This helped ensure you had regular Pap tests to screen for cervical cancer. But new guidelines recommend less frequent Pap tests for younger women, and no Pap tests for many older women. The new guidelines, issued in 2012, revised the recommendations for cervical cancer screening. They suggest women ages 21 to 65 have a Pap test every three years or, for women ages 30 to 65 who want to lengthen the screening interval, have a combination Pap test and human papillomavirus (HPV) test only once every five years. (Most cervical cancers are caused by specific types of HPV, a sexually transmitted virus.) In addition, most women ages 65 and older and women who have had a hysterectomy (and no longer have a cervix) do not need to have Pap tests. The exceptions are women with a history of precancerous cells, cervical cancer or abnormal Pap/HPV tests.

Dear Abby: I would suggest the two ladies create T-shirts that read “At Least We’re Trying!” and watch the jeers turn into cheers. – Carol In

Weiner responds to critics “Mad Men” creator Matthew Weiner has a message for critics of season six of the AMC hit: “Fans don’t run the show.” After waiting nearly a year for this month’s premiere some viewers have expressed disappointment with the new season. Speaking ahead of a “Mad Men” panel event at the Paley Media Center in Manhattan Tuesday night, Weiner likened fan reaction to the show to the arcade game Whac-A-Mole. “There’s not enough agency advertising. There’s too much advertising,” Weiner said of previous fan gripes. “There’s not enough Betty. There’s too much Betty. Who is Megan? Why isn’t there more Megan?” Weiner noted people are still watching and advised fans to “sit back and enjoy where we’re going.” He said he opened the season in 1968 because he believes it was one of the worst years in U.S. history, and while he remained tight-lipped about where the journey is headed he did promise it “might be a little salacious, but that’s what the show is.” Viewers did learn that ad man Don Draper (Jon Hamm) remains tormented and brooding and is now cheating on his new wife Megan (Jessica Pare). Weiner says he believes his lead character remains redeemable despite his flaws. “We’ll have to see what the world hands him and if he’s able to confront a problem that’s following him around that might actually be him,” he said.

Bassist enters rehab

Metallica film goes IMAX

The bassist for the rock band 3 Doors Down has checked himself into a drug treatment facility after bonding out of jail, the musician’s lawyer said Wednesday. Robert Todd Harrell is accused of driving under the influence and causing a fatal crash last weekend in a Nashville suburb. Police say the 41-year-old bassist admitted to drinking and taking prescription drugs before the wreck on Friday. “He was released on bond and immediately went and checked himself into treatment,” Nashville criminal defense lawyer Ed Ryan said. The attorney declined to say where the musician is being treated. However, he said that the treatment is not court-ordered and that Harrell went voluntarily. Ryan also said he couldn’t comment any further because he had just been retained and was beginning to look into the case. Harrell was freed on $100,000 bond on Tuesday.

Metallica already planned to go big with its new 3D film. IMAX is helping make the debut for “Metallica Through The Never” giant-sized. The film that mixes concert footage with a dramatic narrative and CGI will open Sept. 27, becoming the first movie to debut on IMAX’s chain of super-sized screens. The film will open wide a week later. “To be at the forefront in this situation where IMAX has never done this is very exciting,” Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich said. “It’s also a bit of a confidence booster.”

NBC plans 24/7 quiz show NBC says it’s planning a 12-daylong, around-the-clock competition show to air this fall. The network said Wednesday the trivia-based game show, “The Million Second Quiz,” will air live in prime time from a specially built studio in the heart of Manhattan. This hourglass-shaped complex also will serve as the living quarters of the four finalists. When the 12 days – or 1 million seconds – draw to a close, the winner could claim a cash prize of as much as $10 million. Viewers will be able to play along in real time and sync to the prime-time broadcast. The network didn’t announce a premiere date.

Peanut Butter Cup, Boston Dream, and Berry Bubbly cupcakes are featured at Kiera Confections in McHenry.

Sweet on cupcakes Local bakeries can’t keep up with demand By BRETT ROWLAND browland@shawmedia.com McHENRY – Local bakers remain sweet on cupcakes, despite the crumbling stock price of one of the industry’s major players and gloomy forecasts about the future for the gourmet treat. Cupcake makers around the country took notice last week when the Wall Street Journal published an article with the headline “Forget Gold, the Gourmet-Cupcake Market Is Crashing.” The report focused on the sinking stock price of Crumbs Bake Shop Inc., a New York-based chain with 67 locations in the United States. The company’s stock traded slightly above $1 this week after hitting a peak above $13 in 2011. The market for high-end cupcakes has become saturated and the fad appears to waning, according to some industry analysts. “We’ve seen very rapid growth in this category, but the sustainability of trends like this tend to diminish as other trends take shape,” said Darren Tristano, executive vice president at Technomic Inc., a Chicago consulting and research firm serving the food industry. “Demand for over-the-top cupcakes has flattened and started to shift downward.” Though new bakeries continue to open in the region, Tristano said, “they are coming late to the game.” Increasing supply in a market where demand is stable, or declining, could led to price wars or possibly store closures, he said. Meanwhile, local bakers are branching out into new areas, such as breakfast, to keep customers coming in for more. In McHenry County, several bakeries focused on cupcakes have popped up in the last decade. Kiera Confections in McHenry sells cupcakes for $2.25 to $2.50 each with offerings such as Berry Bubbly, a strawberry cupcake with strawberries, champagne buttercream frosting and sugar bubbles. Owner Kim Loewe said talk of a cupcake crash may be premature.

Centegra activities celebrate Nurses Week CRYSTAL LAKE – Centegra Health System is celebrating its nurses with Nurses Week activities that aim to help them recharge and relax. “Centegra’s nurses are at the heart of the community,” said Neil Murphy, senior vice president and chief nursing officer at Centegra Health System. “They dedicate themselves to continuous improvement to enhance the way we provide care to our patients. They seek ongoing education and bring innovative practices to the McHenry County region. Whether they’re at work or at home, our nurses give of themselves every day. During Nurses Week, we take the opportunity to recognize and celebrate them.” The two-week celebration began April 15, when speakers offered presentations to nurses about developing resiliency, self-awareness, team building and loving the nursing profession. Other talks focused on laughing for health, reducing stress and professional image in nursing. This week, nurses will enjoy complimentary breakfasts and teas at each hospital and pizza will be taken to nightshift staff members. Chair massages will be provided and nurses can attend integrative healing offerings including qigong, Reiki, yoga and drumming. “Each of our celebrations allow nurses to come in and out according to their schedules,” Murphy said. “We want to help them reenergize so they can continue to provide advanced care to our patients.”

Kim Loewe poses for a portrait at Kiera Confections in McHenry. “I don’t see cupcakes losing popularity,” she said. “If anything, they are becoming more popular, especially with weddings.” About 80 percent of her sales are from cupcakes, though she also sells cookies, cakes and other desserts. Loewe recently started offering lunch items and plans to add a breakfast menu to attract more patrons and keep them coming back. She views lunch and breakfast service as “bait” to sell more cupcakes. Independent bakers such as Loewe face increasing competition from other bakeries as well as chains and grocery stores. Sugar Buzz Cupcakes and Coffee, which opened in McHenry in 2012, recently served a creation called the Lumberjack, which featured a buttermilk cupcake filled with pieces of candied bacon, maple buttercream frosting, and bacon garnish. Owners Mike and Anisa Cichon hope to turn a profit this year after staying afloat in 2012. They’re offering new products, such as salads, sandwiches and soups “to get more people in the door,” Anisa Cichon said. The Cichons haven’t seen signs of cupcake burnout. On recent weekends they’ve seen groups of people

stopping by for cupcake tastings, and Sugar Buzz’s creations are ordered by the dozen for a variety of events, from birthday parties to weddings. Sales at SweetPea Cakes in Crystal Lake are up about 30 percent this year over last year, said owner Carrie Curie. About 70 percent of SweetPea’s business comes from cupcake sales, depending on the season. “I don’t think it’s a fad,” Curie said. “By the cup or by the slice, people are still going to eat cake.” Curie charges $2.75 to $3.25 per cupcake, including a boozy watermelon lime margarita cupcake for adults. Curie said she isn’t worried about competition because she makes all of her products from scratch, a laborintensive feat that grocery stores and other retailers can’t easily match. As much of the food industry has turned toward healthy eating, the cupcake industry remains unabashedly decadent. Tristano said that could be a liability as dessert trends more toward lower-calorie options such as frozen yogurt. SweetPea Cakes offered a healthy option – a creation featuring orange and cranberry – but it didn’t sell. “Nobody wanted it,” Curie said. “They aren’t coming here for that. They are coming to indulge.”

Is your commercial real estate lease gross? Commercial leases come in many varieties. There are two major categories of leases found in the marketplace. There are referred to as “net leases” or “gross leases.” Allow me to explore some of the differences and nuances between the two. First, there is a “gross lease.” The landlord picks up the costs or expense of real estate taxes, insurance on the building and exterior maintenance like snow plowing and lawn care. Tenants like this type of lease because it is easier to budget for a known fixed number. Landlords have a love/hate relationship with gross leases as they are simple to do the accounting for but if expenses go up, the entire increase comes out of the landlord’s pocket. This reduces the landlord’s financial returns. For example, if real estate taxes go up from $10,000 to $12,000 from year one to year two and the rent stays the same, the landlord has to absorb the loss ($2,000) in a gross lease. Some landlords mitigate

their exposure to this kind of loss by modifying the gross lease terms. They negotiate what is called a “tax stop” into the lease which means the tenant will pay any increase in the real estate taxes over a base year amount. In the example above, where taxes went up from $10,000 to $12,000 from year one to year two, the tenant would be responsible for that increase. This is called a “modified gross lease” and there are variations on that approach in the real world. Sometimes a modified gross lease is structured so that the landlord pays real estate taxes and insurance but the tenant pays the cost of lawn care and snow plowing. Since leases are legal instruments that are negotiated between two parties, they can take a variety of forms. The point here is that if you see the term “modified” in front of the word “gross” as it pertains to a lease, you will need to ask for a definition. As in many things, “the devil is in the details.”

COMMERCIAL REAL ESTATE Bruce Kaplan Net leases are by nature structured to put the onus of expenses on the tenant. Typically in net leases, the tenant pays a scheduled amount of “base” rent and also pays property expenses such as real estate taxes, insurance and maintenance. In a multi-tenant property such as a strip center or industrial building, the tenant will pay his proportionate share of the property expenses based on the percentage of space he occupies of the total. If he occupies 10 percent of the space, he gets the honor of paying 10 percent of the provable documented expenses. Net leases vary in their degree of “netness” (I made that term up) in that some require the tenant to pay all operational expenses of the building (often referred to as a “triple net lease”). Then some net leases only require the tenant to

pay for real estate taxes, leaving insurance and maintenance to the landlord to pick up. If all this sounds complicated, it’s really not. If a landlord puts his property on the market for lease, he will tell you if he is asking for a gross, net or some modified version of those. If it is not clear what he is asking, a prospective tenant will simply ask for an explanation or definition. What is important to understand is that the market determines the level or amount of rents, whether they are quoted as net or gross. In theory, in a given rental market, there should not be much of a difference between net and gross leases. If you take a net lease and “gross it up” by adding real estate taxes, insurance and maintenance to the base rent, the result should look a lot like the gross rents in the market. For example, if $6-per-squarefoot gross is representative of a market rent, the net rent equivalent should equal $6, as well. So, if the

base rent is $4, then taxes, insurance and maintenance are in the realm of $2 ($4+$2=$6). If you are in the market to lease commercial space, be aware of the differences in how leases are structured. When supply exceeds demand by a large amount as is currently the case, you will have more negotiating power than when demand exceeds supply. Sometimes landlords who prefer net leases will end up agreeing to a gross lease, just to make the deal happen. What’s the grossest lease of all? That’s when utilities are included in the equation and the tenant has an all inclusive monthly payment. Then of course you could buy a building and not have to worry about all this.

Site Recovery Services Inc. employee William Burns of Chicago clears out scrap metal at the former Conlon Collins Ford as it is demolished for the new Anderson VW dealership to be open late this year or early next year.

Dealership demo work continues CRYSTAL LAKE – Crews from Site Recovery Services continued demolition work this week at the future home of Anderson Motor Co., 5213 Route 14, Crystal Lake. Anderson Motor Co. plans to build a 30,494-square-foot sales and service center at the site of former Conlon Collins Ford building. Anderson Motor Co. will relocate its Volkswagen operations from its dealership on Route 31. It’s set to open either late this year or early next year. Crystal Lake has pledged the company up to $1 million through a sales-tax incentive deal to help with the project. The former Conlon Collins Ford building has been vacant since 2007. After a change in ownership, it was briefly called Extreme Ford. Anderson Motor Co. bought the property in 2011.

Boeing sees early-May restart of 787 deliveries The Associated Press Boeing is aiming to begin delivering 787s again in early May. The 787 has been grounded since mid-January because of smoldering batteries. Federal authorities have approved Boeing’s redesigned battery system. The new battery setup has been

8IN BRIEF Ford’s first quarter profit up 15 pct. to $1.6 billion DEARBORN, Mich. – Ford Motor Co. reported a better-thanexpected $1.6 billion profit in the first quarter as growing demand in the U.S. and China for its new vehicles helped overcome steep losses in Europe and South America. Ford said Wednesday that first-quarter net income rose 15 percent from a year ago. Worldwide sales rose 10 percent to nearly 1.5 million. In North America, Ford saw 25-percent gains for both its redesigned Fusion sedan and Escape SUV as well as strong sales of its F-Series trucks as home construction picks up. In China, demand for the Focus helped sales jump 54 percent in the quarter, or more than three times the industry average. Ford beat Wall Street’s forecast with earnings of 40 cents per share, up from 35 cents in the first quarter of 2012. Analysts polled by FactSet had forecast earnings of 37 cents per share. Revenue rose 10 percent to $35.8 billion, beating Wall Street’s forecast of $33.5 billion. Ford earned $2.4 billion in North America, up from $2.1 billion a year ago. It was a quarterly record for the region. In the U.S., Ford’s market share jumped to 16.2 percent from 15.5 percent in the first three months of 2012, the biggest increases for any car manufacturer.

Motorola Solutions sales up 1 percent SCHAUMBURG – Motorola Solutions reported first-quarter 2013 sales of $2 billion, up 1 percent from the first quarter of 2012. Government sales were up 3 percent while enterprise sales were down 4 percent. “Despite a challenging enterprise market and modest revenue growth in the first quarter, our disciplined focus on cost management and return of capital to shareholders delivered double-digit growth in earnings per share,” said Greg Brown, chairman and CEO of Motorola Solutions. “We remain confident in the fundamental drivers of the business and our ability to drive improved operating earnings for the year.” Earnings in the first quarter of 2013 were $216 million or 10.9 percent of sales, compared to $232 million or 11.9 percent of sales in the first quarter of 2012.

Orders for durable goods fall 5.7 pct. in March WASHINGTON – Orders for long-lasting U.S. factory goods fell in March by the most in seven months. The drop reflected a steep decline in commercial aircraft demand and little growth in orders that signal future business investment. The Commerce Department said Wednesday that orders for durable goods declined 5.7 percent in March. That followed a 4.3 percent gain in February, which was revised lower. Weaker economies overseas and the impact of across-theboard government spending cuts have made businesses more cautious. That’s reduced demand for manufactured goods. Spending on defense equipment also fell sharply last month. Durable goods are items expected to last at least three years.

installed on 10 787s that belong to airlines, and on nine more that have been built but not delivered, said Boeing Co. Chairman and CEO Jim McNerney on Wednesday. He said “the bulk” of 787s already in the airlines’ possession will get the battery fix by mid-May. Boeing has said each installation will take about five days.

Boeing kept producing the 787 even though it was grounded. But it can only collect the cash from airlines when it delivers the planes – so restarting deliveries is important. The fix should keep any battery problems “from affecting the airplane or even being noticed by passengers,” McNerney said on the company’s quarterly earnings con-

ference call. One 787 experienced a fire after landing, while smoke forced an emergency landing on another. Boeing has gotten clearance from the Federal Aviation Administration for a redesigned battery system that the company says should sharply reduce the risk of a fire. Once the FAA approves the fix on individual planes,

airlines can start flying them again. On Tuesday, United Airlines moved one of its six 787s to a Boeing facility in San Antonio, Texas, so it can get the battery fix. Despite the 787 troubles, Boeing’s net income rose 20 percent in the first quarter. The big airplane maker earned $1.11 billion, or $1.44 per share.

New mach ne burns up to 526% more calor es than aerob c exerc se Exerc ses all 620 body muscles n 10 m nutes and flattens abs l ke a board By John Whitehead, Media Services

Life®

Endless outh and has announced the Total10™ which is being heralded by health and fitness professionals as the best exercise machine in history. The Total-10™ burns up to 526% more calories per minute of workout than aerobic exercise. The Total-10™ provides both aerobic and resistance exercise at the same time. It exercises all of the body’s 620 muscles in 10 minutes. The Total-10 ™ is the perfect exercise machine for the young, old, and even the disabled. It does not cause injuries like other forms of exercise because it does not put stress on the joints or the back. It mimics swimming. Studies show the public is very uneducated about fitness, losing weight and shaping their bodies. This is why the majority of attempts to lose weight and shape the body usually fail. As a consumer writer, I found even I was very uneducated. I got a major education from Dave Dearth, Chief of Staff for Personal Training at Endless outh and Life®. Dearth is a Certified Professional Body Builder who has won the titles of “Mr. America” (officially called the Nationals), and “Mr. Universe” (officially called the Internationals). It is well known among fitness professionals that Professional Body Builders know more about losing weight and body shaping than any other professional group including doctors. This is because their livelihood depends on it. For a quick education, here is my interview with Dave Dearth. Q: Is it true that you are frie ds with Ar old Schwarze egger a d Lou Ferrig o who played the I credible Hulk o TV? A: Actually, I am friends with nearly all of the Professional Body Builders. We are a close knit group because there are very few of us. There has only been in history a little over 200 male Professional Body Builders which requires that you are certified and get a pro card from the International Federation of Body Builders (IFBB). es, I am friends with Arnold and Lou. I have worked closely with Arnold on a number of fitness projects. Q: So, as o e of the ultimate experts o fit ess, losi g weight, a d body shapi g, how do you rate the Total-10™? A: I have studied the scientific data from the university studies on the Total10™. I have used it myself, and I have my clients using it. I can say with expert authority that the Total-10™ is indeed the best exercise machine in history for the average person. Q: Ca you substa tiate that with facts? A: es I can. The Total10™ provides both aerobic and anaerobic exercise at the same time. Anaerobic exercise is also called resistance exercise which means you apply resistance to the movement of muscles with weights, bands, or other techniques. Aerobic exercise

lattens and firms abs like a board

You shed body fat much faster than with aerobic exercise uses only oxygen for energy. Anaerobic puts such a demand on the body that both oxygen and body chemicals are needed for energy. The Total-10 ™ has adjustable pedal resistance, adjustable elastic band resistance and the exercise ball induces extra resistance to the core muscles which is mostly your abdominal muscles. Here it is in a nutshell. The biggest cause of health problems and disabilities is Inadequate Muscle Demand. To remedy this, you need to do exercise that provides Adequate Muscle Demand. When you break a bone in your arm and put it in a cast, your muscles and bones deteriorate in a matter of weeks. When astronauts go into space, their muscles and bones deteriorate in a few weeks because of weightlessness. Contrary to popular belief, things like cleaning house, walking or aerobic exercise are not going to provide Adequate Muscle Demand. It is a law of nature that you USE IT OR LOSE IT. Aerobic exercise is good for cardiovascular health. But, if you only do aerobic exercise, your muscles and bones will deteriorate because there is not enough demand put on them to maintain their mass and strength. Bicycles, spin-bikes, treadmills and ellipticals will not do the job because they do not get resistance exercise to the upper body. The Total-10 ™ for the first time in history, in one machine, provides the fastest, safest, the most pleasant and most fun way to exercise all of the body’s 620 muscles with Adequate Muscle Demand in10 minutes. When you do resistance exercise, it triggers what we call the Healthy Chain Reaction or HCR. Q: Ca you explai

HCR? A: our body has adaption mechanisms which enables it to change to meet demands. When you do resistance exercise, the body’s adaption mechanisms perceive that you will need stronger muscles in the future. So, it starts a chain reaction to provide you with stronger muscles. First, the body must strengthen your bones to support the stronger muscles. Therefore, your bones get denser and harder. For example, Professional Body Builders who do extreme resistance exercise get bones like steel. One who was a friend of mine got into a terrible car accident with enough force to fracture his back even with his hardened bones. Orthopedic surgeons normally staple a fracture together.But, his orthopedic surgeon was finding that the staples were bending when he was trying to insert them into the bone with his staple device. The surgeon had to use a high speed drill with diamond tips to drill holes in the body builder’s bones so that he could pin the fracture together. I have a 71 year old male client that I have trained for the past 17 years who uses heavy resistance and aerobic exercise. He is stronger and can run faster than 90% of men in their twenties. One day he slipped on ice in the front of his house and went down a long flight of concrete steps. He had welts all over his body but not a single broken bone because his bones were that hard. The Total-10™ will definitely help seniors get stronger and denser bones so they do not fall and break bones which is the leading cause of nursing home admissions. When you do resistance exercise it depletes some of

your muscle tissue which the body has to replace. This and having to build up your bones causes your body to increase the performance of all of your organs and glands in order to provide the building blocks for the stronger muscles and bones. It also improves the performance of your brain which is well documented in scientific studies. our hair, skin and nails will also dramatically improve in appearance. It will literally de-age you. Q: Why does resista ce exercise bur up to 526% more calories tha aerobic exercise? A: There are many reasons. First the depleted muscle tissue must be replaced which burns a lot of calories. Most of the replacement is done within 72 hours. Second, your muscles go into a state of partial constriction for 72 hours after resistance exercise. This partial constriction also burns a lot of calories. The building of bones and organs also contributes to calorie burning. Therefore, your body is burning extra calories for 72 hours after the workout, even while you are sleeping. Most of the calorie burning from resistance exercise takes place after your workout. With aerobic exercise, you stop burning 90% of extra calories when you stop working out. A University of Akron study proved that the Total10™ burned 22% more calories than a spin-bike during a 40 minute workout. A spin-bike does provide resistance to the lower body but not the upper body. A University of Illinois study shows that, in a one hour workout plus 39 hours after the workout, resistance exercise burned a total of 1,236 calories and aerobic exercise burned a total of 235 calories. Therefore, resistance exercise burned 526% more calories than aerobic exercise. Most Professional Body Builders who do extreme resistance exercise burn over 7,000 calories a day. Q: Does the Total-10™ shorte the time it takes to do old-style aerobic a d resista ce exercise each week? A: es it does. This is because, with the Total10™, you are doing aerobic and anaerobic exercise simultaneously and you are doing it in a very efficient manner. ou are not getting up and moving from ma-

chine to machine or having to set aside times to do resistance exercise then aerobic exercise. I have estimated I can cut my clients’ workout time by 50% with the Total-10™ and get better results. Q: What ki d of results have you experie ced with your clie ts? A: People who said that they could never lose weight before shed body fat rapidly. Their muscles became firm and shaped. Their abdominal muscles became firm and flattened like a board. ou get good results working out 10 minutes a day, 5 days a week, better results 20 minutes, 3 times a week and great results 30 minutes, 3 times a week. Can you spare 50 minutes to 1-1/2 hours a week to get super fit and attractive and avoid disabilities? They say swimmers have the best looking bodies. This is because swimming also provides both aerobic and anaerobic exercise in a very efficient way. With the Total-10™, you are, in effect, swimming in air.

Q: How ca my readers get a Total-10™? A: ou have to try the Total-10™ to really appreciate it. Once you have worked out on the Total-10™, you will never want anything else. Even people who have disabilities like arthritis, bad joints and bad backs cannot believe how easy and comfortable it is to do a Total10™ workout.

Appealing assessment can reduce tax burden When is enough, enough? We’re speaking about property taxes, of course. Few topics get people as hot by even mentioning the word, and with good reason. Taxes are getting out of control and people are, quite literally, being taxed out of their homes. Let’s take a quick look at some facts. According to the U.S. Census Bureau and depending on how you want to count, there are roughly 3,141 “counties” in the country. Ironically, the largest state, Alaska, has one of the fewest number of boroughs with just 20. Texas, on the other hand, has 254. Illinois has 102 counties and, while that number ranks us somewhere in the middle of the pack, we make up for it in other ways. Illinois has nearly 7,000 taxing bodies, which makes it by far the the leader in the U.S. The No. 2 state, Pennsylvania, has 2,100 fewer taxing bodies. The good news, if you want to call it that, is that Illinois residents do not pay the highest amount of property tax in the nation. The East Coast clearly claims that designation with the states of New York, New jersey and Connecticut leading the way. For example, Westminster County, N.Y., home to the Clintons,

leads the nation as the highest taxed county. The rest of the top 15 counties are all within New York and New Jersey. But don’t think we’re out of the woods yet. According to Business Insider (March 2011) Kane County is No. 24 on the list of highest taxed counties and Lake County is No. 16. McHenry County ranks in the top 50 – not a distinction worth boasting about. It is prudent to mention the old saying, “You get what you pay for.” Some places that have extremely low taxes, don’t include services. How would you like it if your house was burning down and the fire department either didn’t come or when they showed up asked you for your credit card? In some places, that is a reality. Frankly, most of us would prefer they put out the fire before qualifying us as customers. Many of us bought our homes with school districts in mind – that has to be paid for. We want good teachers and administrators and decent buildings for our children – that costs money. We like good roads with as few potholes as possible. Some of us enjoy bike paths and nice parks. Maybe you have a library in your town; yep, that’s a taxing district.

REAL ESTATE Jim Haisler So before we simply state “lower our taxes,” think about the services we receive. Which ones can you do without and would that impact the value of your home? If your school system wasn’t as good as it is, perhaps your house would be less desirable to buyers and, therefore, worth less. Lots to think about. That aside, we would all like lower taxes. What can be done about it? Are there redundant services that would or could be more efficiently performed by merging departments? It’s certainly worth a look. Surely there are layers of government in Illinois providing the same or similar services that could be consolidated. This is not to suggest we fire people, but rather let’s look at combining departments, saving hard costs on buildings and equipment or buying in bulk. Perhaps we could combine planning departments, administrative staff, or accounting people and take advantage of economies of scale. Clearly, Illinois has too much government. No one can argue that. Another way to reduce your tax

burden is to appeal your assessment. If your assessed value is truly above market value, you should discuss this with your township assessor. Oftentimes, they will listen to your case and evidence (and be sure to have good evidence) and reduce your assessment without the formal process. If, however, that doesn’t work – appeal. The appeal process isn’t complicated and can rather easily be conducted by a homeowner. The forms are rather simple once you really look at them. All you need is your current tax bill and good comparable property data. Many local real estate agents will be able to provide these for you. An agent who has experience with this process will be able to greatly assist you. Many real estate agents charge a fee for this service while others, especially if you bought or sold through them in the past, may offer it as a favor. Note, however, that the time frame for appealing is 30 days from when your assessment has been posted in the newspaper. They are published in the Northwest Herald starting from about August to perhaps October, varying by township. Understand this, though: Appealing your assessment doesn’t

automatically mean you will get a reduction or subsequently that your taxes will go down. As an example, let’s say someone appeals his assessment and gets the fair market value reduce by 10 percent. That doesn’t mean that the property taxes will be reduced by 10 percent. The two aren’t directly tied; they are certainly related, nonetheless. Taxes are calculated by the state and utilize an equalization factor. But putting all that aside, the simple way to look at this is that the government needs money, and it’s going to get it. The question is, how much are you going to pay? So, in essence, when you appeal your assessment, you’re really just shifting the burden. That is, if your taxes go down, someone else’s probably went up. It is our duty to read these important assessment documents that are sent to us and to call and ask questions if we don’t understand or disagree.

CL student branch manager of College Works Painting Courtney Vadnais, 20, of Crystal Lake, a junior at Northern Illinois University, has been named the local branch manager for College Works Painting. Vadnais said in addition to learning about how to to run her own business, she will earn six credit hours for the internship. She said she already is lining Vadnais up painting jobs for the summer and is currently interviewing painters to join her crews. All painters receive training by Sherwin Williams before beginning work. “What sets me and my business apart from other contractors is my commitment to excellent customer service,” Vadnais said. “My painters and I will not leave a job until the client is completely satisfied and only then will we take their pay-

ment.” Vadnais said more than 5,200 students were interviewed for the internships and fewer than 400 were chosen. Criteria to become part of this internship include a motivated and hard-working student looking to gain extensive experience in the real world. “Not many people can say they have run their own business, and I will be able to say that before I even graduate from college due to this internship,” Vadnais said. “I have already learned many valuable business skills, customer service and increased my level of confidence.” Vadnais plans to graduate next year with a major in Spanish, with an emphasis on translating and business.

Volunteers from Sebert Landscaping gathered on Earth Day to renovate the landscape of Sage House Group Home for Individuals with Autism, 851 W. Main St., Cary. Where tired and dated plantings once stood, the 10 volunteers planted a variety of colorful flowering shrubs, evergreens, ground covers and a small flowering tree. The Monday event was part of a nationwide Day of Service held each Earth Day by PLANET (Professional Land Care Network), providing an opportunity for green industry professionals to demonstrate environmental stewardship and humanitarianism by giving back to their communities. “These plantings give Sage House even more of a homelike environment,” said Chris Kane, program manager at Sage House, a program of Pioneer Center for Human Services, based in McHenry. “They’re calming and relaxing for our kids – something nice to look at.” “We chose plants that add some nice color to the grounds and are lower maintenance,” said Shannon Hoban, branch manager for Sebert Landscaping. “There are Endless Summer hydrangeas, which add beautiful pastels through spring, summer and into fall. Forsythia will show bright yellow flowers each spring. And purple coral bells will provide a nice contrast. “Each year, we choose a different nonprofit to help out

for our Day of Service. It was nice to learn that this time our donation coincides with World Autism Awareness Month.” Another company, Bartlett Tree Experts, also contributed to the landscape project. Bartlett arborists removed the old plantings and trimmed a large tree on the property in advance of the Day of Service. The value of Sebert’s and Bartlett’s in-kind donations was more than $4,000. Sebert learned of Sage House through its client, Sage Products, which has been a major benefactor of the home since it opened. As well as financial support, Sage Products’ contributions include ongoing facility maintenance and repair services at the home. Each year, as many as 40 Sage Products employees perform volunteer maintenance projects at Sage House for a Lend a Hand Day. “All these efforts help foster a sense of pride, not only for the residents, their families and the wonderful people who work at Sage House, but for the neighborhood as well,” said Russ Lutz, director of facilities and safety at Sage Products. “It’s a great cascade effect: Sebert learned of Sage House from us, Bartlett learned about it from Sebert. And we’re all trying to provide the best possible care for its residents.” Sage House provides brighter futures for families living with autism by creating a safe, warm, yet structured home away from home. It teaches daily life skills with-

Builder enters remodeling project in contest Jerry Kuyper NORTH BARRINGTON – When it comes to design and building awards, Patrick A. Finn hopes 2013 will duplicate his feat of 2012, not to mention 2011. In 2012, he entered five housing projects for the annual Key Awards sponsored by the Home Builders Association of Greater Chicago. His five entries netted five awards. In 2011 his seven entries garnered seven awards. This year he will have five

projects eligible for the 2013 Key Awards. One of the five is almost completed and that is a remodel of a house near Route 22 on Signal Hill Drive. “We started the remodel in October and we will be completed on May 1,” Finn said. “We are expanding a family room and adding three bedrooms and a bathroom to a 1920s bungalow.” Finn’s crew added the three bedrooms with five dormers by combining an unused attic area with space over an existing attached garage. While doing that, the crew expanded a ground-floor family room. The bedrooms with a total

of five dormers now total 1,000 square feet of space. “We started by taking the roof off the garage and going from there,” Finn said. The largest bedroom is a 350-square-foot master suite. Besides hardwood floors and a walk-in closet, the suite has a raised ceiling with the dormers vaulted. “All the rooms are vaulted and so is the hallway,” Finn noted. The hall bathroom has a double vanity, tub and toilet. The downstairs expansion added 300 feet to an existing room.

• BUILDER Continued from page F1 “We removed a decent-sized screen porch, which was pretty dilapidated, to expand the family room to 700 square feet. It has an eight-foot ceiling, windows on three sides and a French door that opens to a covered back porch, which looks out onto an acre of mature oak trees. The house sits on a hill so the view from that back area is really spectacular,” Finn said. The remodel project will cost the property owners $190,000, Finn said. “What we did is transform a cute little 1920s ranch into a five-dormer, Cape Cod house increasing the real estate value by 150 percent. I don’t think they (family of five includes husband, wife and three children) are selling and moving. They have lived there eight or nine years and like living where they are,” Finn said. Like many of his projects, the North Barrington remodel came via a referral from a former customer. “We get a lot of referrals,” he said. Finn’s company, which bears his name, is based at 1244 West Northwest Highway in Palatine. Formed in 1991, his company has completed more than 370 custom homes and remodeling projects throughout the Northwest suburbs with 85 percent of them in Arlington Heights. “We completed 24 projects in 2012 and plan to do the same number this year. They are remodels, additions and all kinds of stuff. Business is picking up nicely,” he said. “We are dedicated to quality craftsmanship and design using only the finest materials. Our experienced team can provide you with anything from a custom new dream home to beautiful custom kitchens and bathroom remodeling, attic remodeling and more.” Finn said he keeps his construction prices in the neighborhood of $200 per square foot. “We keep our (profit) margins down to stay competitive,” he said. Besides improving the quality of life, Finn noted a remodel can double the value of a house. “We tell our clients that, in today’s economic environment, if they are going to live in the house five years or less, they will not get a return on their investment. If they are going to live there longer than five years, they will.” Economic conditions change and his advice does likewise. Finn offers free consultations on the building process. “We go out and talk to the people involved. We assess what they want, then we have another meeting to show them some preliminary plans and the pricing. If it fits into their budget and we agree on a design, then we can go to contract,” he said. For information, call 847-3584133, visit www.patrickafinn.com or e-mail patrick@patrickafinn.com. One of his five 2012 Key Awards was for a kitchen remodel in Barrington Hills. Finn recognizes the importance of a kitchen which is why he will host a free kitchen seminar from 10 a.m. to noon April 27 at his office in Palatine. “The seminar will talk about new kitchen trends, how to design a functional kitchen and how to add value to your kitchen,” Finn said. Finn plans to sponsor four open houses this year, two at client work sites and two at his office. He also will be looking at more entries, besides the Barrington

One of Patrick A. Finn’s kitchen design seminars will be 10 a.m. to noon April 27 at the builder’s office in Arlington Heights. One of his kitchen designs in Barrington Hills received a silver Key Award from the Home Builders Association of Greater Chicago in late-2012. Hills house remodel, for the HBAGC Key Awards. “Like last year, I am assuming we will have five entries this year,” he said. That is good news to Rita Unzner as the McHenry native manages the HBAGC, the sponsoring trade association of the awards. There were more than 70 entries in 2012 and she hopes for an equal number in 2013. “These Key Awards recognize exceptional work in the Chicago area home building industry. It has long been considered one of the most prestigious annual awards programs for housing excellence,” Unzner said. “I talk to a lot of consumers and they tell me they want people who care about their business and their product,” she added. “Builders have to keep up with the consumer who is seeking well educated, knowledgeable companies. Patrick stays ahead of the game so he can understand consumers’ needs. He is upfront, honest and delivers what he says he will deliver.” Finn made the annual listing of the country’s top remodelers of 2012 by Professional Remodeler magazine. Each year the magazine compiles lists of remodeling leaders in each of the top 20 remodeling markets in the United States. Prospective clients learn which firms compete by the most jobs and earn the most revenue in a local market. Finn was the only home remodeling and custom home build-design firm listed from Chicago’s north and northwest suburbs. For a complete list visit www.housingzone.com/ annual-listing. Unzner commented on Finn’s string of wins in recent years. “He is highly regarded amongst his peers,” she said. “Our association is different than others as we do not simply accept photographs submitted by builders for their project entries. We have judges that go out and rate the entries on a score of one to 100. We visit each one of these projects, add up the scores and then come up with the winners.” The HBAGC covers McHenry, Cook, DeKalb, DuPage, Grundy, Kane, Kendall, Lake and Will Counties.

By PHILLIP ALDER Newspaper Enterprise Association

Jascha Heifetz, a great violinist who was born in Russia but moved to the United States at 16, said, “If I don’t practice one day, I know it; two days, the critics know it; three days, the public knows it.” Bridge players do not need to practice that often -- but it would be beneicial if they did. Look at the North hand. He deals and opens one diamond, and South responds one spade. What should North rebid? North has three possible choices, but all have drawbacks: one no-trump (with a singleton), two clubs (aims at minors) and two spades (only three trumps). Best is two spades, which limits the hand and looks for a major-suit it. We love majors and dislike minors. (I will say more on this tomorrow.) South should then jump to three no-trump. If North has four spades, he will correct to four spades. Here, though, he passes. After West leads the heart six, South sees a disappointing four top tricks: one spade, two hearts and one club. Four more are available in diamonds, and another winner can come

from clubs. However, declarer must be careful to take the club inesse at trick two. Although the inesse loses, West cannot safely lead another heart, and the contract comes home. Note that if a diamond is led at trick two, the contract dies. East wins with his ace and leads a heart through the ace-jack. When West gets in with his club king (or East with his spade king), the defenders cash enough hearts to defeat the contract. Yes, playing ace and another club works here, but not if East has the king.

CROSSWORD

HOROSCOPE

▲ ▲

TODAY - In the year ahead, you could somewhat reluctantly enter into a partnership arrangement. However, even though in your eyes it won’t be ideal, it could end up producing numerous and unexpected benefits. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Strive to be cooperative when you find yourself dealing with a group of friends. If you’re self-serving, others will follow suit and no one will benefit. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You have the ability to achieve some important objectives, as long as you don’t spread yourself too thin. Trying to juggle several projects may not be the best idea. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- When talking with friends about something political, you should be extra careful. If you find that you’re endorsing a position that differs from theirs, walk away fast. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Getting along with people from all walks of life is one of your better assets. Be careful, however, because this wonderful ability might not apply when dealing with authority figures. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Methods that work well for you might not do so for others. Don’t try to force your way of doing things on an unbeliever. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- There is nothing wrong with your earning potential, but you might not be too adept at keeping what you make. Don’t allow what you worked so hard for to slip through your fingers. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Although taking charge comes naturally to you, don’t ruffle the feathers of those who want to express themselves differently. There’s room for every sort of viewpoint. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Friends will help you to a limited degree, but don’t ask them to take care of things that you should be handling yourself. You wouldn’t like the answers you got. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You won’t be disappointed if you build your hopes on a realistic basis. The opposite will be true, however, if your expectations are predicated upon receiving a free ride. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Certain conditions that have an influence on your finances and/or career could become quite complex. Handle your affairs with extreme care and delicate attention to detail. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Provided no one challenges you, you will be a most delightful companion. Those who dare to do so, however, could see a totally different side of your personality. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Walk away from any kind of joint venture the moment you see that not everyone has anted up equally, especially if you’re one of

FAVES Five things the Planit Pl@y staff is excited about this week More at PlanitNorthwest.com

C2E2

Geek is chic. So whether you celebrate Speak Like A Pirate Day or were instrumental in making “The Avengers” reach the $1.5 billion mark; whether you are Stark or Lannister; Team Bill or Team Eric; a Whovian or from Hobbiton, hit up the Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo this weekend at McCormick Place. The convention covers comics, movies, television, literature, toys, anime, manga and video games. Creators share insights during panels, and screening rooms have sneak peeks of the next big movie or TV show. And with kid-friendly events such as a superhero obstacle course, costume parades and Quidditch training, C2E2 has something for everybody. But my favorite part is the exhibitor-packed show floor, the best place to see great costumes, interact with artists, find the must-have piece of movie memorabilia and hunt for autographs from celebrities. Big names attending this year include Kevin Smith and Patton Oswalt, but count in stars from several popular TV shows and movies. Tickets and schedule: www. c2e2.com. – Valerie Katzenstein

PODCAST

“The Steve Austin Show”

“How often do you wax your f-----g eyebrows?” former wrestler-turned-actor Steve Austin asked on a recent episode of his podcast, “The Steve Austin Show.” Yes, even the guy once known as “Stone Cold” has his own podcast. But it’s more amusing than you might think. While Austin may occasionally talk about his time in the ring, he actually touches more on other topics from male grooming habits to the outdoors to mixed martial arts. And it’s all done with some colorful language which makes you wonder if Austin was really playing himself when he was the Stone Cold character in the WWE. Despite the gruff voice and redneck persona, Austin is a host who makes his guests feel comfortable, which helps get them to open up a little more. Austin sums it up best on his website, “hell, at any given time it could turn into a 30 minute bulls--- session.” The podcast debuted April 5. Episodes have been posted sporadically over the past couple week, so there’s no telling how often we’ll be hearing from Austin. Available on iTunes. – Rob Carroll

MUSIC

Olly Murs

OK, I admit it: I like cheesy, bubble-gum pop music. My teen years in the ... ahem ... 1980s were filled with cavity-inducing tunes from Madonna, Berlin, Cyndi Lauper and Stacey Q (remember her?). Fast-forward 25 years. Enter Englishborn Olly Murs and his first U.S. release, “Right Place Right Time.” The album is filled with saccharine-soaked pop tunes, many of which could easily be mistaken for Maroon 5 castoffs. Murs shot to fame with the release of his self-titled first U.K. album after finishing as runner-up in the sixth series of “The X Factor” in 2009. Yes, his songs are cheesy, especially the albums’ lead single, “Troublemaker,” featuring Flo Rida. But, there’s a bouncy, supersweet innocence to them that takes me back to my childhood listening to those ladies of the ’80s. For me, this is cheesy, bubble-gum pop that rocks. Available on iTunes and Spotify. – R. Scott Helmchen

Since our national attention span is the equivalent of a 6-yearold at Legoland, viral videos tend to produce stars who burn out as quickly as they’re formed. Watsky hasn’t. Not exactly, at least. The awkward kid from the 2010 video “Pale kid raps fast” – which is approaching 25 million YouTube views – hasn’t exploded into the mainstream by any stretch, but he’s actually building a decent following, and for good reason. Maybe the best descriptor of Watsky: he would suck at journalism. The San Franciscoborn slam-poet-turned-rapper explains things in round-about ways, and it can take several listens to find his point. But I’m struggling to get his newest release, “Cardboard Castles,” out of my car’s CD player. Each spin, a bit more of Watsky’s genius reveals itself. And it’s all done in subtlety, still behind the guise of the awkward, pale kid with a surprising ability to rhyme.

ONE FOR THE BOOKS Johnsburg native George Zwierz Jr. finds success with The Onion and Chicago-based ‘Guys Book Club’

By JAMI KUNZER • jkunzer@shawmedia.com

A

popular Chicago-based web series, described as “ ‘Old School’ meets ‘Breaking Bad,’ ” has a Johnsburg native behind it. George Zwierzynski Jr., who now goes by a shortened name of Zwierz Jr., was known for his basketball skills at Marian Central Catholic High School, where he graduated in 1997. George He’s now known for his work with The Onion and Zwierz Jr. “Guy’s Book Club,” the comedic web series he produces, writes and directs. The series at www.guysbookclub.tv launched its second season this month. It follows a group of Chicago married men, including “Chicago Fire’s” Christian Stolte, Francis Guinan of “Boss,” and UFC fighter Clay Guida, as they try to escape their day-to-day commitments via a fake book club. It’s an idea, like most, that Zwierz Jr., who founded Purple Stuff Productions Inc. in Chicago, garnered from everyday life. Season 1 of the series came out in 2011. “Book clubs were becoming huge,” he said. “Not a lot of guys were doing book clubs, but women were doing book clubs. I figured, ‘what would it look like if guys had a book club?’ The idea spun from there. “They wouldn’t be reading a book, not that girls really do that either.” “Guy’s Book Club” has its characters, ranging from a veteran retiree to an online college student, going from bank robbing to tasering to muffins. In other words, it’s not anything like Oprah’s book club. Touting a higher production value than typical web-based projects, the series makes Chicago both a setting and a character. A huge fan of “Breaking Bad,” an AMC series,” Zwierz Jr. said the series takes on a similar style. “I don’t want to compare us to that at all, but I wanted to attempt to try to give a little

“GUYS BOOK CLUB” For more on “Guy’s Book Club” or to view the web series, visit www.guysbookclub.tv. bit of style to the comedy. It’s very cinematic for a web series, I would say,” he said. Released as a film, he sees it in the realm of “Old School.” Unlike its first season, which was released weekly, the web series’ second and “tad darker” season has been released all at once. This will allow viewers to watch its 44 minutes of content in one sitting, Zwierz Jr. said. The full-length pilot also is available for viewing at the website. “The way people are viewing now, they’ll sit down for however long and blow through a season of ‘Breaking Bad’ or ‘House of Cards,’ ” he said. He’d love to see the series reach television, or perhaps even film, but today’s market is more web-based than ever before, with view-

ers heading to online sites, such as Netflix and Yahoo to watch shows, he said. Those sites, in a sense, are becoming networks, he said. Because of this, more producers that don’t necessarily have Hollywood contacts can put there stuff out there, he said. “There’s a mindset that you have to move to one of the coasts, but it’s not true,” he said. “The more technology coming out nowadays, the more affordable it is, the easier it is to get things made.” Zwierz Jr. began his career editing film trailers and featurettes for major studios, working with Oliver Stone’s producers on “Alexander,” the 2004 film starring Colin Farrell that Stone directed. Zwierz Jr. also worked with John Cleese and Eric Idle of “Monty Python” before heading back to Chicago. “I pretty much learned what I felt I needed to learn to come back here,” he said. “I love Chicago. I love the city. LA. was a great time. I met a lot of interesting people. Ultimately, it

was my love for Chicago and my family and friends that drew me back. I’ve been fortunate I’ve been able to make a career here.” Along with “Guy’s Book Club,” he continues to work with Bill Kurtis’ Production Company and Towers Productions, cutting shows for The History Channel, CNBC and and Discovery, among other networks. He’s spent time producing, directing and editing for The Onion on products, such as “Sex House,” and “The Onion’s Extremely Accurate History of the Internet.” And he’s also producing The Onion’s satirical stage show, “The Onion Live!” set to tour the country later this year. Although he’s in the business of comedy, Zwierz Jr., whose family still lives throughout the McHenry County area, said he’s never really been the funny guy. “I’m very boring,” he said. “I think I was always the guy behind the funny guy, giving him the funny ideas and watching him get into trouble. Hence me hiring actors.”

Little gain from Bay’s ‘Pain’ “Pain & Gain”

HH

By JEFFREY WESTHOFF or Michael Bay, scaling back to make the dark crime comedy “Pain & Gain” was a smart move. For most of his career, Bay has taken on the biggest of summer blockbusters centered on giant robots, islands full of clones and Armageddon itself. Yet his first film, MORE the comparatively modest ONLINE “Bad Boys” with Will Watch the Smith and Martin Lawtrailer to rence, remains his best. “Pain & Gain” at “Pain & Gain” is a PlanitNorthdeliberate return to Bay’s west.com roots (if a single movie qualifies as roots), with a reported budget of $25 million. That’s about one-tenth the cost of a Transformers movie. “Pain” is also a return to the same city as “Bad Boys,” with Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson leading a gang of Miami bodybuilders who turn to crime. All this is not to say Bay has succeeded in making a good movie. “Pain” is still a bad movie. It’s just not the same bad movie Bay has been making for the past 15 years, and that has to count for something. The script, credited to Christopher

F

STARRING: Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson, Anthony Mackie, Tony Shalhoub PLOT: Three Miami bodybuilders (Wahlberg, Johnson and Mackie) with low IQs and lower scruples kidnap a millionaire sub shop owner (Shalhoub) and plan to steal his money and property. When they fail to kill him, things spin terribly out of control. RATED: R for bloody violence, crude sexual content, nudity, language throughout and drug use RUNNING TIME: 2 hours, 10 minutes Markus and Stephen McFeely, is based on a true story so twisted and outlandish not even Bay could screw it up entirely. We get frequent glimpses of the stronger film this might have been if it hadn’t been sidetracked by Bay’s crass views and boorish humor. Wahlberg plays Daniel Lugo, an assistant manager at a Miami gym where steroid injections are regularly distributed in the locker room. “I believe in fitness,” Lugo declares at the outset, echoing the famous opening line from “The Godfather”: “I believe in America.” Along with Rocky and Scarface, “all those guys from ‘The Godfather,’ ” count among Daniel’s heroes. Daniel is a firm subscriber to the American dream, so he can’t comprehend why his bank account doesn’t reflect his magnificent muscle mass. He worked hard to sculpt his physique, so he deserves to be rich. It’s within his rights to take wealth from someone less deserving. “Michael Corleone didn’t become the Godfather by folding towels,” Daniel

reasons. Daniel sets his sights on one of his gym clients, Victor Kershaw (Tony Shalhoub), a scrawny millionaire who owns the Schlotzsky’s Deli franchise near the airport. (Schlotzsky’s Deli is a reminder the story takes place in the ’90s.) Daniel hatches a scheme to kidnap Kershaw, and he recruits two of his gym co-workers, Adrian Doorbal (Anthony Mackie) and Paul Doyle (Johnson). Doyle signs on even though he found Jesus during a prison stint and frequently states he doesn’t want to serve another term. After several botched attempts, a few involving Halloween ninja costumes, the trio do kidnap Kershaw and coerce him into signing over all his assets. Although the movie downplays the physical torture that the real victim (not named Victor Kershaw) suffered, the criminals eventually decide they would be safer if the man were dead. They soon learn they are even more incompetent murderers than they were kidnappers. Things spin out of control from there. Bay has described “Pain & Gain” as a character study, and it probably does come as a relief to him that these characters get to say more than, “Run! Run! Run!” Johnson, who has surprising depths as an actor, gives a nuanced comic performance, and Wahlberg is a bit more manic than usual. Unfortunately, Bay’s idea of a character study is to have the characters constantly state their beliefs and goals, what they are going to do next and how they feel about what just happened. Nearly all characters, major and minor, take turns doing the narration so “Pain” becomes possibly the most voiced-over movie ever made.

Continued from page 15 Characters also state their own traits in the bluntest terms. We know we are not meant to sympathize with Shalhoub’s character because he approaches an employee washing his car and snipes, “You migrant workers suck.” Bay hasn’t tamed his hyperkinetic camerawork and editing. But this time, Bay occasionally uses his overamplified techniques for comic effect. When the story reaches one of its strangest and sickest developments, the image freezes, and the subtitle “This is still a true story” appears. Shockingly enough, the overall narrative and many plot points indeed adhere to the facts. Some things have been simplified, which is the nature of any movie that squeezes several months of reality into two hours. Lugo and Doorbal are real people now sitting on Florida’s Death Row. Their gang had more than three members, though, and Johnson’s character is a composite of two of them. The portrayal of the victims, Kershaw and a later target played by Michael Rispoli who meets a more horrendous fate, also has drifted from reality, and here is where Bay’s appetites ruin his chances to make a film worthy of the material. In Bay’s worldview, every person who might qualify as an “other” – whether by race, creed, age, income level or weight (especially weight) – must be portrayed at worst as grotesque or at best as moronic. Kershaw’s Judaism is draped about him like a garish cloak. Background characters aren’t exempt. The man who shares Kershaw’s hospital room is grossly obese and has explosive diarrhea, because overweight people in Bay’s movies exist to be humiliated. An exception is Rebel Wilson, because the heavyset actress is too popular to be ridiculed. She plays Mackie’s girlfriend and gets to humiliate him for a well-known side effect of steroid use. Bay loves these kinds of jokes. The only character treated with dignity is a private investigator played by Ed Harris, probably because Ed Harris plays him. Bay also positions “Pain” as a satire of the pursuit of the

American dream. This intent is hard to miss, because American flags are everywhere and Wahlberg sometimes gives a speech in front of one, like “Patton” with free weights. Satire requires subtlety, a word that won’t be found in Michael Bay’s dictionary. Still, “Pain & Gain” is more free-wheeling and less patronizing than Oliver Stone’s similarly themed, and similarly violent, satire “Natural Born Killers” (Stone also struggles with subtlety). “Pain & Gain” offers evidence Bay could find a real voice as a filmmaker to replace his megaphone, but massive budgets aren’t the only excesses he’ll have to shake.

QUEENS RULE Drag show encourages MCC students ‘to be who you are’ By JAMI KUNZER jkunzer@shawmedia.com

Nautica Nero

W

ith an emphasis on encouraging students to “be who you are,” McHenry County College’s Pride Club is bringing drag queens and kings to the stage. The club is hosting Mr. and Miss Drag MCC 2013 at 7 p.m. April 26 at the Luecht Conference Center at the college, 8900 Route 14, Crystal Lake. A second annual event, the show will feature professional drag queens as well as performances by 11 amateurs, including students, a faculty member and staff. Funds raised will go toward the roughly 20-member club’s many awareness events throughout the year as well as an LGBTQA scholarship fund to help pay for tuition and books for students who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or questioning and their allies. Those taking part have participated in “boot camp” trainings the past few weeks, receiving tips and advice from the professional performers, including CeeCee LaRouge, Nautica Nero and Lady “B.” “I showed them how to do their makeup, how to shave and carve body padding out of couch cushions and all the little secrets of the trade,” said Nautica Nero, otherwise known as Mark Mazzie of Woodstock. “I always joke around that when I’m done up and painted, it takes a lot of work to look this cheap,” he said. Mazzie, a 2006 graduate of Woodstock High School, performs regularly at Hamburger Mary’s in Milwaukee and The Office Niteclub in Rockford. A friend of Pride Club members, he also took part in last year’s show both to entertain and offer support. “I think this is extremely important. I had a horrible time in high school,” Mazzie said. “We shouldn’t have to worry about hiding ourselves. We should be able to walk down the street like everyone else without everyone pointing at us.” With last year’s show drawing roughly 150 people, organizers expect even more success this year. About 100 tickets already have been sold, said Pride Club member Caroline Culbertson of Crystal Lake, who organized the event with fellow member Syed Quadeer. Simply the originality of it should

attract a crowd, she said. “It’s a drag show in McHenry County,” Culbertson said. “It’s seemingly a very conservative area. A lot of people are just uncomfortable being who they are. By putting this show on, people will see a lot of people are supportive. . . “Plus, it’s fun. There’s a fun side to us. Really, you can be who you are.” Along with the awareness it raises, the show helps fund the club’s more serious causes, such as its many awareness events throughout the year for World Aids Day, Transgender Day of Remembrance and others. “Last year we set up a display. We put up bios of people who had been lost because they felt they had nowhere to go,” Culbertson said. “These are the causes, and these are the people we have to support so we’re not losing people we love.” During the show, club members will hand out ribbons representing various community resources, including support groups, free HIV/AIDS testing, the McHenry County Crisis Hotline and other information. Club members will talk about the ribbons, the colors they represent and the resources throughout the show. The awareness an event like this raises is invaluable, say those involved. “Drag queens, way back in the day, started the gay rights movement,” Mazzie said. “We’re kind of doing our part. . . The money is going to a good cause. To support the LGBT movement, that’s ultimately why we’re all doing this. To say, ‘Hey, we’re here.’ It’s slow and steady steps toward equal rights.”

WACM festival benefits area needy By JAMI KUNZER jkunzer@shawmedia.com

A

s the need has grown, so has a festival to raise money for the area’s homeless. When 10 Woodstock-area churches and their choirs come together, the result is a night of pure entertainment. Children’s choirs, bell choirs, a Hootenanny Band, the Frothy Boys, dancers and numerous other performers hope to draw at least 500 people to the Woodstock Area Community Ministries (WACM) Festival of the Arts. This year’s event also includes dinner, an art display and a silent auction, along with the festival’s annual concert. The event takes place from 5 to 9 p.m. April 28 at Grace Lutheran Church, 1300 Kishwaukee Valley Road. All money raised goes to support the homeless and needy within Community Unit School District 200. “Demand keeps growing and funds keep shrinking,” said Renee Witt, president of WACM. “We’re trying to help.” Previous festivals have drawn about 350 people. But organizers hope the dinner, art display and silent auction draw more interest this year. Visitors still have the option to attend the concert only. The festival features the talents of those throughout the community, all coming together to help one another, organizers say. Ron Fredriksen, director of music ministry for Grace Lutheran Church, heads up the concert portion. Among the entertainers are barbershop doo wop group The Frothy Boys of Woodstock, a “Drinking Group with a Singing Problem” that donates all of its profits to charity. And First Presbyterian Church of Woodstock’s Hootenanny Band will feature instruments, such as the violin, flute, clarinet, alto sax, trumpet and trombone, a rhythm secion, and singers who’ll lead a sing-along presentation of old-time hymns

FESTIVAL OF THE ARTS WHEN: 5 p.m. April 28 WHERE: Grace Lutheran Church, 1300 Kishwaukee Valley Road, Woodstock COST & INFO: Hosted by Woodstock Area Community Ministries. Schedule: 5 to 7 p.m., artwork display, dinner and silent auction; 7 to 9 p.m., concert. Tickets: $10 dinner and concert in advance or $12 at the door; $5 concert only. Tickets and information: www. wacmgroup.org.

with a New Orleans feel. As for the silent auction, attendees will have the option to bid on items, such as golf outings, autographed baseball memorabilia and gift certificates, Witt said. They’ll also see displays of local artists, including paintings, ceramics, woodwork and more. During dinner, attendees will be treated to musical entertainment. “It’s an affordable way to spend your evening and see all the people you know from town,” Witt said. “There

are a lot of people who come from Woodstock. It’s a good way to gain support from the community and recognition for the ministries.” Money raised goes to-

ward a fund that provides emergency help, such as food, clothing, gas cards, medicine and utility bills for those in needs. The funds also support

PADS, McHenry County’s homeless agency. “It’s an expanded, more exciting festival this year,” Witt said. “We’re happy to do that.”

Famed songwriter Calo takes CL stage 21 By JAMI KUNZER jkunzer@shawmedia.com

I

f you haven’t heard his music directly, you’ve likely heard it without knowing it while listening to Carly Simon or James Taylor or even while watching “The Lorax.” Peter Calo’s wide array of work can only be described as eclectic. Calo has released five of his own albums, and composed music for more than 10 children’s DVDs as well as several film, television and theater productions. “I guess you’d classify [my music] under singer/songwriter,” said Calo, well-known as a guitarist and producer in New York. “That term is a pretty loose term. I have a lot of influences,” he said. “I like finger-picking. I like the styles of different South American music. I like mixing blues in there ... I know that sounds vague, but again, I guess we could just call it singer/songwriter.” No matter what you call it, Calo’s music has taken him on a successful journey for more than two decades. Along with Simon and Taylor, he has performed and recorded with numerous artists, including Queen Latifah, Willie Nelson, Hall and Oates, Linda Eder, Phil Ramone, Jimmy Webb, Kris Kristofferson, Leonard Bernstein, Marc Shaiman, Julie Taymore, Lesley Gore, Crash Test Dummies, Joel Grey and The Platters. Calo will perform, alongside fellow musical artists Cassandra Vohs-Demann and John Hegner, as part of “3 Songwriters on 1 Stage” at 9 p.m. April 27 in “the Listening Room” at Lakeside Legacy Arts Park, 401 Country Club Road, Crystal Lake. Vohs-Demann owns A Place to Shine Studio in Woodstock and was named one of the Top 25 Indie Artists of 2012 by Women of Substance Radio. Hegner owns Starbell Hatchery Studio just outside Woodstock and is an acclaimed composer and producer. The three will alternate songs, integrating their music at “the Listening Room,” the relatively new venue at Lakeside where performers and audiences are invited for more intimate entertainment. Friends of both Hegner and VohsDemann, Calo had worked with Hegner as a session guitar player in the late 1980s. He also played guitar on VohsDemann’s last CD, “Here I Am,” which was recorded at Hegner’s Starbell Hatchery Studio. Calo, himself, is working on a new CD and said he will perform some of his new material from that project. He began performing at a young age, traveling with a band after high school doing cover songs. They’d perform 40 to 50 weeks a year. “After three of four years, that got

3 SONGWRITERS ON 1 STAGE tiring, and I put my own music together because I wasn’t starving enough,” he said. “That was the beginning of having a band with original music. . . “It’s been one thing after another, ups and downs, generally having a go at it. There’s nothing I’d rather do more.” He said he’s been fortunate to work with so many artists, both well-known and others simply known in the business as talented musicians. He’s proud of the work he’s done with Carly Simon, having been the music director and co-writing four songs on her 2010 release, “This Kind of Love.” “[Simon’s] just a a wonderful person and influence in terms of how to look at songwriting,” he said. He’s also worked with one of his “childhood heroes,” singer/songwriter Jimmy Webb, the man behind numerous platinum-selling classics, such as “Up, Up and Away,” “Galveston,” and “Wichita Lineman.” He toured with another childhood hero, “Hall and Oates.” And he said he’d still like to work with Steve Winwood, “all the Stevies, Stevie Nicks, Stevie Wonder. I love Stevie Wonder.” “I like Bruno Mars. I’d love to work with him,” he said. “And I love Sting.” Still, what he’s most proud of, he said, is making his own music and being able to make a living at that.

WHEN: 8 p.m. April 27 WHERE: The Listening Room at Lakeside Legacy Arts Park, 401 Country Club Road, Crystal Lake COST & INFO: Featuring Peter Calo, John Hegner and Cassandra Vohs-Demann. Tickets are $25 for advance sales; $35 for reserved front row and high top tables. Call the Dole Box Ofice at 815-455-8000 or at www.lakesidelegacy.org. Calo also will host “Singer/Songwriter Workshop with Peter Calo!” 1 to 3 p.m. April 27 at The Listening Room. Tickets for the workshop are $10 in advance at 815455-8000 or www.lakesidelegacy.org. For more information on Peter Calo, visit www. petercalo.com. Though technology has led to changes in the industry, he said he sees more of an interest in acoustic music than ever before. He started performing before computers, watched as drum machines came into use and the digital age began. “I think people really like hearing the emotion of somebody sitting down and doing [their music]. I think people still like a really over-the-top piece, like Beyonce or something like that, and I enjoy it, too,” he said. “But I still like going into a small place and hearing someone with a guitar, and just creating something.”

ROB CARROLL WITH MUSIC’S NEW RELEASES

Kid Cudi

“Indicud” HH Let’s get this out of the way: Kid Cudi actually features Michael Bolton on one of the tracks on “Indicud.” Yes, the adult contemporary crooner helps sing the hook for one of Kid Cudi’s stoner rap numbers. Bolton’s appearance on “Afterwards (Bring Yo Friends)” is part of Kid Cudi’s turn toward a more positive outlook on this album. Maybe that also has to do with him stepping away from making this another release in his “Man On The Moon” sequence. Look for “Man On The Moon III” to be out sometime next year. “Indicud” is chock-full of Kid Cudi’s trademark trippy beats. “Red Eye” features female vocals courtesy of sister pop act Haim. The song turns out to be rather upbeat for a Kid Cudi track. But let’s not get carried away. “Indicud” is still about Cudi pondering his life while in a haze of smoke. He still has a song titled “Lord of the Sand and Lonely.” This time, Cudi’s outlook on life is more of an even split between positive and negative. And that negativity too often drags this album down.

FEATURED RELEASE Thee Oh Sees

Phoenix

“Bankrupt!” HHH 1/2

“Floating Coffin” HHH

French alt-rock band Phoenix grew its following in the U.S. thanks to its excellent 2009 album, “Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix.” That release had them sounding a little more poppy, and closer to music from The Strokes or The Killers, than in the past. “Bankrupt!,” the band’s fifth studio album, is of that ilk, as well. And while it might not have a recognizable hit that jumps out at you like “1901,” “Bankrupt!” is, top to bottom, a more solid album. “S.O.S. In Bel Air” feels frantic, yet controlled. “Trying To Be Cool” stays true to the song’s name with its relaxed vibe. That song leads into one of the more interesting ventures on “Bankrupt!,” the album’s title track. For nearly seven minutes, Phoenix offers an instrumental songscape that has several twists and turns. It’s not Pink Floyd, but it’s darn close. After a somewhat slow start, the song also marks where Phoenix truly hits its stride on this album. The jagged “Drakkar Noir” flows right into the swaying “Chloroform” without missing a beat. Instead of burdening the listener with another seven-minute song, Phoenix breaks it up into two smaller doses that can stand on their own as well as work together. “Bankrupt!” might not have the bouncy Phoenix songs that were featured on “Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix,” but the band and this album is better off for it.

OUT APRIL 30 The Airborne Toxic Effect, “Such Hot Blood”; Beacon, “The Ways We Separate”;

Sometimes, when a band brings several influences into its music, it does a whole lot while accomplishing very little. That’s not the case for San Francisco’s Thee Oh Sees, which blends elements of psychedelic, garage, punk and pop rock. Think of Jack White producing a Mamas and Papas album. There’s a sense of danger on “Floating Coffin” as the band always seems on the edge of losing control of their music. But they never do. Explosive tracks such as “Tunnel Time” and “I Come From The Mountain” make “Floating Coffin” slightly heavier than the band’s past releases. But even with all of these influences being brought into the music, this album could still use some variety in its songs. While Thee Oh Sees may have a unique sound, they do little to set their songs apart. That’s the only thing that makes “Floating Coffin” a good album instead of a great album.
